On this page several short films about assembling and maintenance of the Thys 222 Revolver. Assembling of a rowingbike could for instance occur when the bike has been transported by plane to a holiday destination.

Bike shown in the video is a earlier prototype with a small 20 inch rear wheel and silver anodised footslider ring. The regular Thys 222 revolver is equipped with a 26 inch rear wheel, a black anodised footslider ring and steel propulsion cable.

The small rear wheel was used to create a lighter gear. The lighter gear was so convenient that the large 220 mm Snek was designed to achieve the same low gear on the 26 inch rear wheel. The small rear wheel limits the maximum rowing speed at around 55 km/h. Taking the larger wheel makes rowing up to 65 km/h possible. Okay, I'll admit it: I only use that gear in descends or going downwind in a gale!
