There's some good stuff on youtube on man v bike v horse.

Sinnerman, if you work out how to make the eccentric on the back brake work, please let me know, as there is one fitted to my wife's Marin Palisades and I cannot fathom out how to make it work.

You might be right about the bike bit; to be honest, I was more interested in what was involved for the horses, as I wouldn't mind having a go (on my horse, NOT running).

I'll have another look, as there was a great interview with the guy that started the whole thing off.

I only started riding my Zaskar again in order to improve my fitness for my horse riding.

Now look what's happened!
