I think it's great that people are actually using these fantastic machines rather than just looking at them....

Good work! :)

That back brake must work really, really badly. I'm sure I saw some BITD with the straddle wire crossed behind the seat tube to get some semblance of a useful angle ;-)

agreed on the rear brake , S Bikes used the same principle of cross wiring them .
