is it really a bearing?

it looks more like a pair of gears (teeth) on the rim and frame locked together with the tension provided by the chain.

that'd be one fucking hell of a bearing!

That bike supposedly uses the hub out of a helicopter

I'm sure that is made to hold up to everyday riding.

Wonder if it's the good ol' friction-don't-ride-through-a-puddle drive?

as far as billy lanes, what would the gearing be with a 24 tooth tranny sprocket and a 150 tooth rear?

not very rideable

Have never heard billy give credit to Osmo's from where he received the idea and design for hubless.

not reall, but ive never heard him be asked either, same for amen...i know that perse(front ends) did alot of the machining for the choppers inc bike

but there used to be a picture of the choppers inc bike on that website, so i think there is not really a story there, they both know who did what.

i cant get beyond that gear ratio, and i know he has ridden it, but i also know the gearing is useless...while a hubless wheel is cool, all the ways ive seen of tying it to the powertrain leave a little bit to be desired.

There was a CC member here a while back that said he had bought the hubless bike from Billy. But after being accused of lying, he never posted again. I think there is someone else on here that has it.
