and a youtube movie of yours truly on it here
It has a top gear of 118 inches, which means that on the flat I can get up to 35 mph before I spin out.
Gravity assisted, I've done a terrifying 68 mph!
Up hill, even when my muscles have adjusted to the slightly different demands that a 'bent makes of them, I'm a little slower than on an upright (upwrong?) bike, but overall, it averages about 15% quicker.
Never had a dodgy moment in traffic. Lots of people stop you to ask about it and the kids love it.........so do I!
More refined than mine!
I have an early one, I am led to believe the first imported into the UK, and it does not have the front changer (my 64 - 42 change is by and yanking on the chain!) it also has an elastomer as opposed to shock suspension.
Mind you it still goes like a rocket!
I like Hurricanes!! Yours is particularly nice.
Lovely machine, the same colour as mine.
That things insane
Two wheels? I thought they were all trikes. How do you "pull away" in it?
How do you ride off on a normal bike? It's not really any different.
That's just Wong!
I think the correct term for what you ride is an upwrong.
I'm glad you like it.
It's easy to ride - with a bit of practice.
Pulling away is quite simple: you have to have confidence and the initial pedal stroke is very important.
Is that carpet in your shed?
'Spose so. It just seems very hard to visualise.
It's very cool and now I want one
I'm now feeling deep shame that my shed isn't carpeted
All of my bikes have their own offcut from Carpetright.....doesn't everyone's?
My bikes get to live in the house with me. Mrs Mikey's bike is out in the uncarpeted shed.
