Sepeda Kuno

I stumbled across something refreshing while searching for pictures on google.

It is a blog about sepeda kuno (classic bicycles). I find it very refreshing to see solid-bodied steel bicycles still rule the roads of Indonesia.

This bicycle definitely grabbed my attention.

I understand why this beauty is preserved in the museum. Look further.

Bevel gears instead of chain-driven cogs!

To me, this is innovation at its best. Maybe not so much on technology, but the solutions they came up with reflects a lot on how much thought, creative visualization and to a certain degree, imagination was put in.

Do visit our friends. There's a lot to discover; Lever-operated cable-less brakes, bicycle suspension during its infancy, wheels with painted sidewalls. Enough to go around a month's worth of lunch break during this fasting month.
