I particularly like the Campy posi-trac system. Good comments on training, too.

The Campi Posi-trac is pretty wild...bent_spoke

and the Cannondale Gemini looks like a train wreck waiting to happen. No thanks! I'd like to try Mt biking, but not that way.

Is that a straight bar coming out from the Captains seatpost ?

The captain's rings are on the right, with a triple chainring. Examine closely.

The stoker is only allowed to hold onto the rope with one hand. Only rides longer than 8 seconds are scored.
i dont understand the campy cranksishmael

they dont look real for one. It looks like the image has been streached, the bolts arent round. It makes no sense to me, I dont think the chain would even touch some of those teeth. Is this a joke? I dont get it.

Tested for a couple years by the pro downhillers, I believe Airlines should be available to the public soon. Been getting rave reviews.

And I don't know who cooked up that pic of a tandem Gemini, but that's not even believable. Anyway, the magazines have been saying good things about the real Gemini, if anyone believes them.

I didn't quite catch the gag there... need more sleep, less climbing I think.
