Hi Scop, that's what happens when those bike riders take up a whole lane.

What the hell were these guys thinking? Well they obviously weren't, so what the hell were these guys drinking?

Couldn't find it elsewhere so facefuck it is.

I always wondered how my old 3 speed changed gears just by pulling on that ball chain coming out of the fat hub in the back.

This explains it even better, but it sure is complicated.

I may have overstated my temerity's degree of mitigation.

I've rebuilt a few Sturmey-Archer three speed hubs, back in my wrenching days. They are cool AF

My second bike was some English three speed with a Sturmey-Archer hub. I loved it. I bought it for $12 at a police auction. I must have been about 12 or 13 years old. I had $15 to spend and the bike started off with maybe a $10 bid. I bid on it, and then some adult man who had been bidding on a lot of bikes bid against me. So I looked at him, and I can only imagine the expression on my face. I bid $12, and he stopped bidding. I think he took pity on me.

Fast forward two years and somebody stole it from me. It had a cheap combination lock. Pissed me off. I loved that bike. It had a leather seat and green paint. And a cool rack. Really big wheels too. It seemed so fast.

Theft was how I lost my Sears Automatic Five as a kid. Riding it was kinda/sorta like driving a car with an automatic transmission.

It had a 5 speed external rear gear cluster, changing gears manually with a conventional selector lever, on a Shimano internal automatic 2 speed (direct and overdrive) hub. As the bike was ridden, an internal sensor changed the freewheel from direct to overdrive. There was a speed selector dial on the spoke protector, with five sensitivity positions, adjusted by turning the protector plate. That provided a range of RPMs over which to set the 2 speed hub to change automatically. The 5 speed rear gear cluster in conjunction with the automatic 2 speed hub gave 10 different gear ratios with a single chain wheel. On the cap in the center of the rear gear cluster, where the axle came through, it said "Automatic Five." Losing that came as a hard blow at the time.

Still kicking. Sunrace bought them and moved everything to Taiwan.
