The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
Do you realize that if your bicycle can only operate on land, over 70% of the planet is off-limits to you? Judah Schiller has come up with a solution to this problem. With the Schiller S1 the rider sits upright just like you would on a standard bicycle. The front sprocket is attached by a gates belt to a smaller rear sprocket that drives a propeller. The propeller can be flipped up out of the water (as shown in the photo). Price for the S1 starts at $4.500 and you can add accessories such as a fishing pole holder. It comes in three different frame sizes. Here's a video that shows it in action.
