    just needs a sturmy archer 3 speed hub.

    edit: actually that wouldn’t work…hmm would need a bit of creativity but you could work out a geared hub.

    Decisions, decisions, penny farthing or unicycle?

    If you don’t want to be ostracised by the pennyfarthingists, never call it a penny farthing – it’s an “ordinary”…

    Ugh, that’s a real thing isn’t it?

    I reckon it’s only a matter of time until I see someone on one of these in the Northern Quarter of Manchester.

    Put a Schlumpf unicycle hub on instead.

    Ben will be along in a bit to sell you one.

    I’m waiting on the Rapha photoshoot, with grainy gelatin prints of course. A rider dressed in tweed plus 4’s and a sports jacket wearing a bowler hat, monacle and a handlebar moustache as wide as set of Easton Haven bars, wearing the best handmade brogues a gentleman could possibly buy – I see him riding up a long climb in yorkshire whilst a farmer with his shire horse furrows a field in the background as steam rises from the horse’s nostrils and overworked muscles as it struggles to plough the frozen ground on a frosty morning, this will draw parallels with the riders superhuman effort to crest the hill.

    Any owners on here of an ‘ordinary’? 😉 Tell me how the hell you manage with it, surely the number of times you need to stop and put a foot down pretty much restricts the roads youre on, either closed or not needing stops?

    You just find a handy lamp post to grab hold of – traffic lights are good too 😉

    Ben will be along in a bit to sell you one.

    I sold one in 10 years – I’m rubbish at selling stuff. Besides, it should have a much bigger wheel then it won’t need gearing.

    Digger the mascot rides one around the pitch at London Irish, more entertaining than the rugby this season.

    He appears to have got himself tangled up in the handlebars.

    I wanted one until I saw how you look riding it!

    I was looking at them the other day, thinking , yes, want. But then i an undecided over that or a cruiser bike………… cruiser maybe a bit more useable for work and back . There is one that looks like an old american army bike without the engine, but quite pricey.

    Do you think it would be possible to fit a Hammerschmidt?
