Just noticed the link was missing- have edited it.

Bjorn's gate is fitted with a bob trailer- these use a special qr skewer to attach the trailer to the bike.

This was his Audax bike- has done over 20,000k's inc. Paris brest paris (1200k in 3 days!!)
Sadly he got an acquired brain injury 2 years ago and is wheelchair bound...

What's the advantage of the odd shaped frame? The blue one looks very short.

As I understand it the advantage is a much shorter wheelbase than a conventional double diamond.
