I'm not suggesting you try, but does it float?.
I don't mean can you ride it on water, that would be silly.
But there must be a fair amount of boyency (sp?) in those tyres.

:shock: . Thanks for that.
I thought they may support their own wieght but not to be used as a floatation device!
The perfect triathlon bike for people learning to swim.
