Back then, in 1922, it made perfect sense to trust a gun manufacturer to make a safety bike. That’s because the same manufacturing technology to develop rifle barrels worked pretty well for bicycle tubing too. There was Iver Johnson, Browning, and Miyata in Japan.
Iver Johnson’s innovation was adding a truss to the top tube to, you know, make it stiff and vertically compliant.
It was spec’d with thick enamel paint, bright nickel plating, and a full complement of Chater-Lea components.
My daily shooter is Sony a9 II with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more recommendations on our store page. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
