and a Spanish Metabike Metaphyics

The newly released Dutch Challenge Chamsin -700C was reviewed today on http://www.bentrideronline.com/

both look sweet.. how do you like the front drive bike? I have no experience with them. I do like the simplicity of the drive train, on it.

This "Heavy as a cast iron boat anchor" gem, I slapped together in 1981.
It was fun but not practical.

Wow, that's a beast! The crazy things we do in our youth, eh?

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.
