    The first pic looks to have been a bike made in the late 1800's I remember seeing one in a Transportation museum somewhere I think it had a clickity-clackity sprag clutch for a coaster doubt if they were immensely popular probably too expensive to manufacture given the technology of the time.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Neat, I agree with Frank S, the first one looks like one of the bicycle mechanisms in my Hiscox "Mechanical Devices and Movements" books.

    No sprocket to catch my pant leg in. And a few less moving parts than a chain, I think. Looks like a right design to me.

    I have a friend who has one of these, only his has wood rims, and I seem to remember the gears were more enclosed.
