    Thanks OzBroz for enlightening and directing me to the plethora of online drive trains. I had a general idea of what the two speed system would do? But when I saw it on the YouTube posts...Wow, that's really awesome! I'm certainly incorporating it into next year's build off!


    If you want to see how it works...check it out on You Tube under "Retro Direct"...it's an awesome idea that's been recycled since 1869. :D :D :D Thanks again OzBroz .
     
  4. Ok so both sprockets freewheel, that's what was throwing me for a loop.

    We're all loopy?

    I didn't know the "retro direct" drive train would generate such interest :wink: But it seems we're digressing from Remix, after all I'm considering doing it next year? If theres no objection I'd like to move any further discussion about this unique drive train over to "Bike Talk"?

    Good call I admit to seeing Remix with another post by your good self and clicking over in anticipation of a late update or final detail.
    Wicked bike this year.

    Well, I haven't done much on Remix the last few days, I've been preoccupied with my latest editions...three Racycles. I finally got around to taking them out of their boxes and getting them together!

    Second time this morning I've had to say WOW.

    Maybe it's going to come down to a Mortal Combat-style showdown:

    Fordsnake! Kingfish! ......FIGHT!!!
