Weight distribution and aerodyanmics is improved with one pedal. I find I do 1 leg for 20k at a time. Also, without spacers I can easily detach my handlebars for optimal aerodyamics whilst steering with my knees.

:mrgreen:

Clearly , I need to remove both pedals and cut the steerer ! :mrgreen:

wow what a sexy looking machine.
I'm guessing your next upgrade will be the seatpost?


Ha...nah mate the next upgrade (unfortunately) is a new frame. This one has a crack and I'm waiting on the warranty frame to come in. Why unfortunately? The new frame is a red one.



Kinda like this one?

What? You have dual threaded (left AND right handed) pedals? Awesome.

Yeeeee, smaller back wheel, no chain or gears or double triangle frame. Take that fixie hipsters.


Yeah I doubt any hipsters are going to be jealous.

It has a brake.

Hipsters do not ride with brakes.


Yea, but given application of the brake kills you, I still think it counts.

Besides, you can point out to the hipsters how their chan stretch and so forth denies them a proper connection to the wheel, and that they're just getting a dampened sense of what's really happening...


Ahh a unicylcle with a training wheel. Back many years ago I used to build unicycles, still have my direct drive 20" and a chain drive 5 foot tall 20". Met up with a guy who built PFings and started to collect the bits and pieces I would need. Cast up a bronze hub for the front wheel but other things got in the way and it never happened. Used to go up the the Adelaide hills (when I lived there) to watch the strathalbyn races. Madness.

Sure I remember seeing sub 5kg bikes on the net but surely they'd be cracking more than 5kg sooner rather that later. :shock:
