We drilled everything BITD, here's me and you can se the holes in the seat post, about the size of a 1 pence coin LOL
Sad thing is the wind resistance would have gone sky high and if it snpped that would ave been the end of my career
Tremendous Shaun, liking the effort being exerted in that photo and that's a lovely looking bike indeed. So was this drillium done on a scientific basis or did you just drill until you thought you'd reached the point where it looked like 'any more and that's going to break'? Drilling a seatpost just seems a bit erm madcap to me as like you say it could have had dire consequences had it snapped.
You still got that bike by the way?
