Here are some pictures of the Weird Ass Chain Bath!  That thing is much uglier than we had imagined.  Plus the bearings were in the sprocket itself, not inside of the wheel.  No wonder this design failed horribly and apparently killed people.  Good call Jameson for taking it off!

 

Episode 007 Horsepower, Torque, and Gear Ratios Make You Go Fast

The gang's all here to confuse you with definitions and math.  We talk to our caller Frank about his Ironhead transmission gearing and how to make it go fast, then how to make it go at all.  We also start the conversation about some advancements in transmission designs to customize your riding desires and then spiral down a rabbit hole about whatever.  Enjoy!
