This puzzle, created and patented by a certain John R. Lynn, garnered a lot of attention in America back in 1898. Using gates similar to those used in the Cast Puzzle, A.B.C, this one has the same kind of labyrinth-like flow. Since we weren't able to reference the original puzzle, the remake of this one took a considerable amount of time. We are confident that we've created an accurate replica that's just as enjoyable as the original.
The key word is "paths"

Too bad there is an error ins the puzzle which gives 2 solutions, of which one is awfully easy. Error is on the notch in the top bar of the bicycle. The notch should be a tiny little further away from the saddle.
Nice puzzle. Looks very simple and can be completed simply. There is however a misfit that can be abused to get the ring off at the "chain gear".
A very simple but beautiful puzzle. This one is perfect to share with friends. Simple but not obvious solution.
Quite easy but fun. Kids love this one, and you can't get too lost on it.
