This will certainly turn a few heads. Renowned German manufacturer Qu-Ax, have produced this marvelous modern day take on the Penny Farthing; It is as twee as it is surreal. Most penny farthings don't have pneumatic tyres, the Qu-ax Penny Farthing does, this makes a great difference to handling and ride. With a 36 inch front wheel you're sure to get noticed!
This well built replication combines vintage styling with modern technology. The pneumatic 36" (91cm) front tyre and 12" rear wheel, provide a comfortable ride in nostalgic style. Has a small step on the rear of the frame to help mounting. Calliper brake on the rear 12" wheel (not on front).
The Penny Farthing can be a very unusual performance prop or perhaps just an unusual way to ride to the shops...
The smallest cyclist who can comfortably ride the Penny Farthing bike is around 5 foot 6 inches (1.67m)- based upon typical leg length of someone that tall.
The manufacturer gives a recommended weight limit of around 85 kgs (around 13.5 stone) but our distributor feels this is quite conservative - riders a little heavier should be fine as long as they are sensible.
This game is showerproof and can be left outside overnight during summer months. However, it should be brought inside in extreme weather and should be stored in a dry place over winter.
The Qu-Ax Penny Farthing is designed for normal road use only. Toodle Pip!
