Celeste blue? Your house should be surrounded by angry Bianchi riders armed with torches and pitchforks shortly.

That looks like a Daphne Blue to me, next to a Surf Green.


Obree is a nut.

Why anyone wants to cycle facing the ground is beyond me, like those idiots who go down bob sleigh runs on tea trays!

Just out of interest, I wonder how many people have actually attempted a record for "riding in the prone position"? I mean, it's slower & less ergonomic than a recumbent, so regardless of how much effort he put into building the thing I find it hard to appreciate.

Well they reckon it would be the most aerodynamic shape. I find that hard to believe, due to the height needed.

That is awesome. Give that man a Knighthood for not only being a supreme athlete but a genius and comical inventor too.
