What you know about LeverCycle?

“The High Torque Cruiser can offer many benefits as well as the first bicycle with an integrated on-board computer. The frame is wide enough to include electronic devices such as an ipod, head lamp or touch screen computer which could illustrate cardiovascular health and vital signs while exercising on the machine. This technology has a lot of potential and like other bicycle technology, it continues to evolve. But most importantly the bicycle stands out because of its unique frame structure.”

Straight up innovation going on in the cycling industry right now. Talk all you want about the new Trek Domane, or Dirty’s new fat bike, the LeverCycle can get you reduced fatigue, lower weight, better geometry/fit, better aerodynamics, and better propulsion while you’re mashing on those levers. This propulsion increases when a rider is standing up, because the rider is able to use gravity while shifting his or her body weight almost vertically to alternate pedals. Even more, the LeverCycle offers multi-speed capabilities that provides more mechanical capabilities when going uphill. LeverCycle will keep you rolling, skidding, jumping and tricking like a hands down baller all day every day.

  1. something tells me the “High Torque Cruiser” is being marketed to the “driving isn’t an option” crowd

  2. I actullly saw a bike like this back in 1987 in a bike shop in Germany. I was stationed over there with the army, and a bike similar to that was at the shop where I bought my first mountain bike. I remember my friend Chris say “OMG look at that abortion”..I didnt know shit about bikes back then, but I knew fail when I saw it.

  3. Love that some dude made his idea real. It may not be a good idea but at least he got out there and created something.

  4. I just put it straight, I love the comments section on this blog. You all make me smile.

  5. Cupcake, I see what you did there…

    Angry +1. Taking something very simple and making it very complicated. They could at least get his saddle height right…

  6. …if you read the copy for ‘levercycle’ & believe it, please, get in touch as i have a superb deal on a bridge i’d like to sell you…

  7. OMG that “weird bike” page made my entire body numb. The “rowcycle” weighs 55 pounds and you can’t use your legs? Sure thing, home-bray, hope you make it back to town alive.

    Oh, and African #5 made me laugh out loud. Yes, it does look like a robodog trying to wipe its ass on the road. [shudder] I may not be able to sleep tonight.

  8. Stairstepper machine mechanics…. Nothing new. Cant see how it could ever be more efficient than being clipped into a revolving drivetrain w/ continuous torque application. wish I had that kind of free time tho…

  9. Saw one on a local group ride a few years back. Dude got shelled rolling out of the parking lot.

  10. i still think my regular ol’ mountain bike has leverage against this thang!

  11. @art #25— I went on a group ride out of Columbus OH one time, where the ‘fast’ group all had their names stenciled on their top tubes and shit. They somehow persuaded some kid to run “crazy cranks” that ran independent left to right… I missed the split, of course, but when our group caught crazy cranks, that kid was barely moving, weeping and praying to make it back to town before the coyotes got him. Lesson learned.

  12. …el jefe…not many…i got real tired, real fast of large groups up in the hills having ridden in groups on the road for years…

    …i was literally raised as a kid in tiny communities in the woods of northern ontario & with those kinda roots, it was a panacea to just get out there, stoned, lost in thoughts & nature without all the large numbers & the “rah, rah, rah !!!”

    …nothing wrong with that whatsoever but it wasn’t me for long…when it was fred wolf, charlie kelly, maybe otis, joe &/or gary on single speeds, i was there regularly but by the time a lotta the other ‘pioneers’ came along, i was doing a lotta solo shit…

    …some of those ‘pioneers’ forget that shit…

  13. Those frontyards need some dressing up. A couple old short-cab dumptrucks and a ’72 Dodge Dart on blocks. Maybe a dwarf dressed in a pink bunny suit in a shopping cart…uh…where I seen that before?

  14. …also, el jefe…on seekay’s site…‘bike world’ mag cover, pre-mtb days, that’s charlie k (stars n’ stripes – no he wasn’t a nat champ), gil de la roza (green & yellow with marijuana pin – nice) & myself (red n’ black) hidden in the back…

    …i learned a lesson that day…when your fotog friend asks you to gather a few cycle buddies so he can try for a mag cover, wear your flashiest jersey or you’re not gonna be in the front…young, innocent n’ dumb but hey, dedicated to the wheel…

    …btw…all the talk in ‘klunkerz’ about ‘velo club tamalpais’ & it was gil de la roza & myself who put the nucleus of that club together…gathered all these cool ‘alternative’ (dope smoking, independent thinking) cycling folks ‘cuz we honestly foresaw the sum being greater than the whole…none of us were really material for a ‘regular’ cycling club, so we hadda do it our way…

    …charlie, joe, gary, peggy m, otis & others were all there in the beginning of the club but vct didn’t materialize out a’ thin air, de la roza & i laid the groundwork & organized the first get-together in a day of no cell phones or computers…

    …again, something some of the early folks seem to forget…

  15. …whoops…should read – “…‘cuz we honestly foresaw the sum being greater than the parts…”….

  16. The CK page just got a bookmark…can’t wait to go back and read the whole thing! Thanks for the link mendon!

  17. Thanks for all the attention. I actually rode the Alenax in the photo on my “Weird Bikes” page. It is the worst attempt at two wheel transportation EVAH, and that list includes the Rise-I-Go.

    Unlike a normal bicycle, which balances a standing rider’s weight on the BB, the “Transbar” power system moves the sanding rider’s weight one crank length forward of the BB. The effect is that the front of the bike now weighs so much that you can’t pop that front wheel over a two-inch obstacle.

    Also, one or the other of the crank arms is always hanging down, looking to pole-vault you over the next rock it snags.

    Despite the fact that it was total cr@p, the Alenax appeared at every bike show I went to for ten years or so, in a huge exhibit complete with foxy models and a pounding disco theme song. And every time I saw it, I wished I had found that investor before they did.
