Wheelie bars. The rider obviously generates so much torque he is lifting the front wheel on every launch.

It's a pity the pics don't show the full setup clearly, I'd be interested to see more.

Don't normally like Colnago's, but I like that. It must be the Superbe Pro bits.

This one is 2 suburbs away. My size. Just not in a position to do anything about it, for a number of reasons. :cry: Could walk there, with a couple of pedals, and ride it home. :lol:
Well, no, it's not a pushbike, otherwise I'd be pushing it...

I tried to grab this one last week, but too slow:

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/fremantl ... 1008995766

Looks like some assh^H^H^H^Henterprising person has snagged it only to triple the price and re-list:

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/yokine/b ... 1009336210

Thankfully it's just a Taiwanese cheapie, not an exotic Concorde like some of the others.

We have a little one riding one of these on the velodrome. We had to create a new pee-wee category for her. Now we have other kids joining in.

They should have this listed as "tarck bike - fixie, fixie, fixie"

Makes me want to run down to the tip shop and pick up the ten or so they've got down there...$10 each last time I looked.
Ours is not to reason why...merely to point and giggle
