Path Pacer Victorian/Edwardian Bicycle
Path Pacer Bicycle
Path is the old Victorian/Edwardian cycling term for the track, so a path racer is essentially a track bike with road geometry and 32mm Course to 38-40mm Demi-Balloon tyres used originally on unpaved roads as well as track. A path racer is a hybrid bicycle designed for road and track cycling.
Path racers use 28-inch (635 mm) rims and are also referred to as Road-Path or Road-Track. They are distinguished by their high bottom bracket and dual-purpose track ends for both road and track racing. They also use 120mm spacing for the rear hub, which can be either fixed-gear or single-speed coaster brake. The angles are not quite as steep, and the bottom bracket is lower than that of a pure path bike.
