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

Looks like fun!


I had a go on a Windcheetah once, I can report that the chainset prevents the whole thing from flipping ;)

I WANT :)

would this type of contraption benefit from an internal gear hub?
if you get stuck in a situation that requires a sneaky gear change, it'd be better than having to get up out of your comfy chair and sorting it out - you wouldn't be able to do a quick 'pick the bike up by the saddle and spin the crank with your hand' type jobbie....

p.s. fatter tyres please :P

just did a test run before it pees down...steering is very precise ..the country back ounds being potty make it a test to ride on ..as for gearing ..ive seen some fitted with internal gearing and they are very nice.ive also seen some with the hub fitted motor as well ....fatty tyres as promised...
