The most obvious special thing about this bike is the chainring that spells out Bufalo. Apparently in Mexico buffalos only have one f.

The other special thing is the rod brakes, but not just an ordinary rod brake, a rear rod brake. Snaking along the frame is a series or rods and joints activating a caliper on the rear. It’s wonderfully complicated and inefficient.

This bike has character.
