I look at pictures and ask questions.
I am not in the market for this bike just curious.
The seller says he knows nothing so lets learn; Please.:)

My 1891-2 Rambler pedals are just like that. This is a great bike (not my color choice tho)
Interesting that it has crossed, not radial spoking.

The 1887 Columbia Light Roadster had crossed/tangentially laced spokes.
I'm not sure, but I think it was the first commercially available bicycle wheel to be built this way. I would think, earlier than that over in England and France though.
