To say this is cool is an understatement. I would love to visit sometime
and try it out. I borrowed a 1.5 geared Hunter36 for a while this
summer and managed to get pretty comfortable with the 54" equivalent
gearing, at least on flat and down. Uphills really take effort. But man
does it love downhill.

I didn't see the whole weight in the thread - Pete have you weighed
it?

that is a work of art. it's great that people like you are pushing
the bounderies of this sport even furthor then they are.

I'm curious as to what kind of cranks those are? they sort of look like
CF but that to me dosen't really seem like something that would be used
for cranks hmm.

I think Seattle could get behind that concept. Ideally we could
pick a time of year where we could get a good turnout, and coordinate a
few different types of rides, uni touristing, etc.

Great solution: pedestrian technology, applied cleverly. Tell me, will
you post detailed drawings? Also, I'd like to see step photos of the
wheel being freed from the bearings and chain drive. Is it tedious?
As pictured, how much does it weigh?

Now go chase down some impala- there really should be a spear-rack.

Total weight with disc brake setup is 19.8lbs (9.0kg). Cranks are FSA
carbon pro. Saddle is custom Wallis Design.

Sorry but I build by sight only, and have no plans to disassemble it
anytime soon for pics or drawings. However, here's a repeat post of the
business end:

Nathan, do try to visit up here sometime, you're just the kinda guy to
take The Red Menace to a new envelope. I'd be happy to set it up with
the 1.96 for ya!

Actually you know what the coolest would be? Bring it to Ride the
Lobster and/or UniCon next year! 1.96...wow sounds almost scary. Over
70" effective!

Yeah...it has been whispered about here in Seattle...that there is an
obligation, perhaps even an exectation, that the Seattle Area Riders
will field at least one team. I've been hesitant due to devoting 2
weeks of vacation already to Uninam. But RTL is unique...it's like the
gumball ralley for unis...if you get the call, you need to go.

Current whisperers...TB, Bruce, Steve...we'd need an alternate and a
support person at least. The geared uni would need to come along.
That would allow Pete to take my breakfast shift, so I could have time
for extra hash browns to fuel up for the long afternoon.
