    Cheers for the tea and cake!!!

    Frustruck, very fast on the flat and downhill, but it's a bit heavy for much uphill speed, and awesome into wind! One day I'll be able to afford one of the new superlight models.

    Hey Bentmikey!
    Look out for Bonj - he'll be asking why on earth you would choose to ride such an unstable, fad-driven, unpopular, too low to be seen, small wheeled, hard to start.... Ahhhh - you've already seen it!! LOL!!

    er... Mikey. just one question, you do realise you've got the fairing on the BACK? I thought it was supposed to go at the front?

    Ah, aerodynamics and recumbent design, subjects he knows sooooo much about..

    I think he has a point here, a front fairing would certainly help.

    If that bike's anything like a Ratcatcher, that isn't a fairing so much as an aerodynamically maximised tailbox, for carrying stuff. So it's not just for aerodynamics - although the tailed off shape helps to minimise the vortex behind.

    Adding a fairing on the front would be possible, but might just make the bike too unwieldy for everyday use. Of course, Mikey might have a fairing, but just not fitted in the photo...

    Mikey, you took you time getting here, good to see you have come to join the fun. One question, is that you on the skates in the Budweiser ad?

    Hello too.

    Is this a forum where a lot of the C+ folk now hang out? I have been to the bikeradar forum too but it seems a bit quiet.
