MISC:   Sears Hydraulic bike posted by: MC on 6/26/2003 at 4:54:16 AM
Does anyone have any information on this bike? It's a typical Sears issue from the 70s-80s, but what is unique is the single hydraulic brake lever mechanism linked to bothe the front and rear brake. It would seem that air pressure causes the aperature to compress causing braking power. Very interesting bike. Lime green ugly and Shimano low end components, but the brakes are quite unique. I've never seen another one like it. Any information would be helpful.
