Planetary Gear Bicycle

The planetary gear bicycle may not be actually rideable, but it does qualify as an interesting piece of art. It is a model of the good old Penny Farthing bicycle and was built from Windform XT, which is a carbon fiber reinforced polyimide and is used to create high-performance parts for  motorsports . The bicycle was created by  CRP Technology  to demonstrate their capabilities. They crafted it using SLS rapid prototyping and gave it the planetary gear system.
