Apparently the direct strain from head to bracket was dealt with more thoroughly and strains from twisting were also combated, creating an infinitely more rigid frame. Whether it improved the bicycle or not, there was good case for creating unique features in bicycles so they stood out in the crowd and attracted extra attention from the cycling press. Elswick's ‘twisted’ down tubes becsme their signature feature.Frame strength was key issue of the day: frames were getting lighter by the year, and cycle enthusiasts were keen to put new designs through their paces to find their stress points. As well as crossframes, many of the top manufacturers were adding extra tubes to their diamond frame bikes to add ‘psychological’ strength to the machine, ie to make it appeal to riders who felt they needed stronger frame on their bike: large bikes had two top tubes, Royal Enfield was successful with their ‘Girder’ frames, and Premier used an extra tube in the opposite direction to the Girder. Elswick did also try out the American Iver Johnson patent design, described by them as truss-tube, but also known as an ‘arch-frame.’The ‘Popular Truss’ twisted down tube design is featured on both the Gentlemen's diamond frame machine and Ladies' loopframe.This rare Elswick Popular Truss is in an older restoration in good condition and ready to ride._______Delivery Worldwide.More photos and details at the Online Bicycle Museum_______ OWNER: The Online Bicycle MuseumLOCATION: Brighton, EnglandSHIPPING COSTSUK DELIVERY by man van service: £50(Scotland/Wales/ Cornwall £80)EUROPE (inc Ireland NI): £100REST OF WORLD: £250
