great pics .... had me thinking that Jobst Brandt is into the pop group Hansen ... ;-)
the gearing they use looks outrageous - something like a 48/52 front and 13-21 on the back. real half stepping but not anywhere near easy climbing gears.
after seeing the pics i definatley felt that it was a must do before i die. cycling heaven for sure.
