Crazy bike round up

   I often find myself surfing eBay or Craigslist for bike parts and come across some weird ones. Here is a little round up of the silliest parts and bikes: 
   Monocoque bikes are nothing new...

Haro Monocoque

I have one of these Haro frames and after picking up a modern frame, this thing feels heavy as hell! The frame also came chromed, which was a very slick mirror finish on the sides.

Cannondale could have it's own whole post for all the stuff they've made over the years, I'll stick to two of the weirdest:

This was called the 'Magic Bike' for reasons unknown...

Rollerblade wheels?

Biopace is a crazy technology that is making somewhat of a resurgence. I had Biopace on my first bike without realizing how weird it was until someone pointed it out.

Newer systems

Last one is called a Buddy Bike, and my parents rode one forever ago and my dad told me about it. Check out the crazy crank arms.
