I guess this is really an eliptical drive.. but that giant ring looks really cool.
Cippo could push that - nmtmotz

Hell if you're gonna go custom up front how 'bout an 8 in the back!

There's a picture of a bike in "The American Bicycle" that's even more extreme than this ... the chainring is so big it's almost touching the rear cog, as I recall (don't have the book handy). I think it's the bike that was used to set a speed record of somewhere in the 120mph range.
