Hubless bicycle

nuttycyclist:
Apologies for the annoying advert in the middle of it, but I just stumbled across this and I want one.  Not sure if it has been spotted or discussed in here yet.

A home built (or converted) hubless and spokeless fat tyred bike.

It only has one brake and it’s the wrong side of a chain tensioner. Ergo when you brake the tensioner binds or snaps off and you have no brakes.

No wonder the test videos are short, slow and all in a flat park.

By all means get one NC.

nuttycyclist:
Just because that particular one has design flaws doesn't mean that the next one won't.

It's the whole hubless idea that I'm attracted to.

Mr Larrington:
Wonder what it's like descending Suicide Hill at 60 mph?

neilrj:
So needs tyre levers and a couple of spanners to fix a flat.
