Hey Lachy, I am currently doing the P-Far course with Brett. I am 173cm tall and my wheel size is 48 inches. Wheel size is determined by leg length. Though I have seen mates riding a 36 incher. My completed front wheel is sitting downstairs and I am on my way to finishing the whole bike. I will post pics when completed. By the way, there is a Pennies by the bay later in the year at Sandgate.
Perhaps I have a sick mind but the first thing that comes to my mind is a scene from one of Clint Eastwoods old Clive-The-Ranfutang movies - the bit where one Harley gets tapped and the whole lot go over like a line of dominoes.

Like I said, I have a sick mind.
I thought that too .
When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments- Elizabeth West.
I understand that the serious distances and races are done in Tassie. I know a couple over here in WA that do distance races - things well in excess of a 100km - but I think they have to travel a fair bit to get to them.
Those things are seriously dangerous. And going down anything other than a gentle slope downright scary. Good luck to anyone who has the heavy testicles to do it.
for those in Adelaide, on Sunday, 30 June at 11am the members of the Penny Farthing Cycle Club of SA are planning on a ride starting at 11am from the Buffalo at Glenelg. They welcome other riders, "either on pennies or safeties"
Philip if you don't want me to see your posts, PM me and I will happily put you on my Foes list
