Speed Bike Has Natural Airlines, 1936

Natural streamlining is accomplished in a new type of bicycle designed in England for use on the speedways, 1936. Aware of the discomfort suffered by racers who must remain humped up over their machines for long periods to reduce air resistance, the designer has placed the drive pedals behind the rear wheel. The handlebars are lowered almost to the level of the front axle.

This is the new streamlined bicycle designed in England, 1936. The rider practically lays down on his machine to reach the pedals set behind the rear wheel. Note the close-set wheels.

In this posture the rider is almost horizontal to the ground and in a naturally streamlined position. It is believed the new machine will produce speeds far in excess of anything yet accomplished.
