NordicTrack released its Fitness Bike in 1992 featuring the Radial Gear Transmission first created in the 1980s by inventor Royce Husted. Husted introduced his own bicycle -- the Yankee -- shortly before NordicTrack procured the rights to market it under their name. The new gear system never quite caught on and little was heard about it in the ensuing years. NordicTrack declared bankruptcy in 1998 and was subsequently purchased by ICON Health & Fitness.

There's a noticeable scarcity of information on the internet about this chapter in the history of bicycle development, so I'm posting this NordicTrack promotional video showing the Radial Gear Transmission and Rim Band Brake in action. For historical purposes only!
