Can you do a report then please. I've always found these interesting.

Before and after pics would be good if you are doing mods. Especially if you're fitting Mavic mechs. Somehow SSC mechs would be kind of 'fitting' on a thing like that.

Must admit, I admire you're dedication to biking. I really do like the fact that if you can't go a normal bike, you have just found a bike you can go. I think that's cool.

Still think SSC kit would be good on a bike like that though:Beautifully and elegantly industrial. Like little pieces of engineering art.

Very interested in how you get on with the project though.

Don't forget the long red arm on the road side to keep the cages at a distance as they overtake
