Mileage wheel used by Will Steger

This bicycle wheel, fork and metal bar were attached to Will Steger’s sled during his historic crossing of Antarctica on foot in 1989-90.  A mileage counter was attached to the hub and by the end of the trek it read 3471 miles! See photos of it in action on Steger’s website.
