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.
Hummah Hah! Found your next Century bike? (nm)MeDotOrg

... 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.
I saw that bike first hand a few years ago...biknben

...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".
