I suspect they assume you'll drop the sail and use the pedals to go upwind :)

yay ...its here at last.thanks to a bit of a blunder it ended up elsewhere ...but its here now....i spent the afternoon sorting out the mech,chainset ,cables ,bb,pedals,boom length and the frikkin puncture i got before i even left the house grr.went for a quick ride up and down and can testify the thing is much quicker than a weird 2 wheeled bike thingy.it came with a big flag thingy so i dont need to get one now.tomorow i shall fit the flashing lights,speedo and the rear view mirror so i dont get squished..the steering is very direct...like a go cart ..its great fun tho.

How far down the road do you land if you jam on the brakes too hard?

Looks like fun!

it corners so well you have to hang on quite a bit.its quiet too.I thought it would clunk a lot but I had to yell on your left yesterday so I would get noticed.today's job is change the shifters and brake levers.then at some point upgrade the brake pods....

can you do tank like turning - i.e. jam the right brake on to swing the left wheel round?!
