The Red Baron Rides again.

Dear Gods, this is possibly the silliest bike I have ever owned. If my nerve holds, I'm aiming to be riding it on the FNRttC this Friday.

When I was looking at my first 'bent I had a play with one of those at Forest Row... they are completely mad - without SPDs I would not recommend riding down a 1:5 hill on a roughish road surface!

I wouldn't have had the nerve to commute on one but now, having owned an Orca for a few months... the younger daughter wisely says "dad you better get one soon else you won't be able to get down onto it!" hmmmm

/me looks at BHPV forums for a cheap Baron!

Looks fabulous and an interesting write-up of your labour of love. :biggrin:

You'll fly (metaphorically speaking, I hope :thumbsup:) once you get used to it.
