Who said riding a Penny Farthing is old fashioned.  The buck20 breaths new life into an old idea and brings smile along for the ride.  Taking a very large 36” front wheel and connecting it to a 20” rear wheel gives us a surprisingly agile, safe and fun bike that is also very practical and low maintenance.  No chains, derailiers or fiddle gear changes.  We have pedals connected to the front wheel and only one speed.... you can’t get any simpler than that.
