Hi Condor, have you seen a bike like this American Landrider, with an auto gear changer?

That is what I would need if I were to ride a bike, I have never been able to figure out how to change gears on a bicycle, problem is I cannot find the clutch Girl Smile

I have no problem Alan, in fact if I can split my gears, making twelve into twenty four by up one & down another or the opposite. I go down half a gear or up half, that what we had on lorries in my younger days.

Just seen this Nordog and haven't seen before. Looks okay though but might be tricky if it ever goes wrong. Good ATB there - not too heavy. Okay on road or off it.

Yes Alan is very funny Condor, this chap needed one of my bikes to come with use to Bath because that bike had no gears, it works by gravity centrifugal force I believe, weighs a ton as far as I'm concerned it should be scraped.

Frame looks a bit American 'Cruiser' type. Heavy yes. Steel. Okay for shortish exercise rides. Gears on left - as is, probably, front brake. Fit Shimano quick-shifts and proper mechs and it would be okay.
Very Happy
