AGE / VALUE:Pennyfakething posted by: Matthew on 1/19/2008 at 6:22:39 AM
Hello Hi wheeling folks,

I am probably committing a grave sin by mentioning this but here goes.
I am amazed by the videos of the pennyfakething on Youtube. The idea is so simple as to be plainly amazing. I would encourage you to take a look, but maybe not to try riding one? The 'under your backside' steering makes dismounting a problem but the idea of deraillieur gears (or hub gears) and pneumatic tyres does make the idea more attractive.

Matthew - back to the ER DB.

The 'mounting a bike with handlebars under the seat' problem has already been solved - see my site: http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/'talizmar/xntrick/TopSeecrit.htm

AGE / VALUE:Our Special no. 9 posted by: Andy on 7/31/2007 at 4:18:46 AM
I am not having much luck finding info on a bike made by Western Wheel Co. The model is " Our Special no. 9 ". I think it is a 1890's era. Any help would be appreciated. Point me in the right direction. Thank you.

  Replies:
          RE:AGE / VALUE:Our Special no. 9 posted by bill on 8/5/2007 at 6:30:04 PM
Western wheel co was in chicago, and made the cresent brand bike. They were noted for making bikes without the use of heavy forgings for the bottom bracket crank area or teh fork head. Even their sprockets were made from folded over steel. I have a cresent number 1 from 1894 that my dad rides that is made tht way and it is very strong. He has ridden iton at least 3 century rides with no problems. You might try the wheelmen web site at www.thewheelmen.org They have a library with copies of catalogs on cd for sale.
