Title
(EN) SHOCK ABSORBING BICYCLE WITH PRESSURIZED AIR SUPPLY SYSTEM
(FR) BICYCLETTE ANTI-VIBRATIONS DOTEE D'UN SYSTEME D'ALIMENTATION EN AIR COMPRIME
Abstract
(EN)
A pressurized air supply system for providing pressurized air to an air powered derailleur (69, 71) of a bicycle (10) having a bicycle frame (14). The system comprises an air pumping mechanism (54) attached to the bicycle frame and adapted to supply pressurized air when actuated. Fluidly connected to the pumping mechanism and to the derailleur is a pressure reservoir (70) of the system. The pumping mechanism is attached to the bicycle frame such that the passage of the bicycle over uneven terrain facilitates the actuation of the pumping mechanism and resultant charging of the pressure reservoir with pressurized air.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système d'alimentation en air comprimé permettant d'alimenter le dérailleur pneumatique (69,71) d'une bicyclette (10) dotée d'un cadre (14). Ce système comprend un mécanisme de pompage de l'air (54) fixé au cadre de la bicyclette et conçu pour fournir de l'air comprimé lorsqu'il est actionné. Un réservoir de pression (70) du système est en communication fluidique avec le mécanisme de pompage et avec le cadre. Le mécanisme de pompage est fixé au cadre de la bicyclette de telle manière que le passage de cette dernière sur un terrain irrégulier facilite l'actionnement du mécanisme de pompage ainsi que le chargement du réservoir de pression en air comprimé qui en résulte.
