|And somebody said my conversion of mtn bike to road bike would be a "Frankenstein". Looks like someone beat me to it.
Can you imagine the CO2 cartridge for those babies. May as well use them for rocket engines.

|... the frame lacks curves!
Can I put thorn resistant tubes in it? I'd hate to try to pump those up on the roadside with my $4 Pic-n-Save bike pump.

|...at a MTB festival in Moab. Mr. Hanebrink himself was riding it. Actually, I did a few rides with him. Each day he brought out a more unique bike. A six inch travel fork on a hard tail. Then this monster.
The bike suited the ride perfectly. There was a lot of deep sand and steep exposed rock. The gearing was set up to go really slow but he never had to put a foot down. The tires went over anything.
Gotta love it.

|They ought to make all the TDF teams use one of these for one of the stages. As the guy from Laugh In would say --- "V e r y I n t e r e s t i n g".|| |
