In 80s, Joan Crous, from a small town in Catalunya and passionate with inventions created one velocipede. He named JOACRO.
His workshop was his house. It was not too big, but with his oven was enought to mould the steel to make the frame and other bike parts.
The characteristics of all velocipedes have a larger front wheel than the rear and direct transmission in the front wheel, so the pedals it be fixed directly to the axle of the wheel and do not require brakes. The reasons to have a big wheel in front are because how much larger the wheel be, farther it could travel with a rotation of the pedals.
Crous in 80's was already innovating: direct transmission liked it, but he did not want the pinion to remain fixed. Then, he designed a system that allowed the pinion to get rid of the transmission of forces when the rider stop pedaling and designed some drum brakes to stop the velocipede when he wants.
*Velocipede: considered the precursor of the bike. The term was coined by the French Nicéphore Niépce in 1818 to describe its version of Laufmaschine or Draisina, which was invented by the German Karl Drais in 1817.
