When wife mentioned a cross trainer I was ready with the sales pitch for this in the back of my head, but it never moved to forward brain to justify it.

What a story! I especially like that your cross trainer has a rack. Is that for snacks?
Yep, I have some bike.

The rack is for the Beto child seat that I never had any successful desire to fit to the other bikes.
Since the pantry isn't too far away the child seat can go on this rack, maybe sideways mounted so our 10month old boy can look out the window instead of bouncing backsides.
My goal for the year is to have ridden every keeper bike to work 40km round trip. Only two that haven't yet Fat Sand Bike (no front brake, fine for sand, not for road) and the Street Strider for lack of prep.
I will take it for a test ride to the local shops for bread/milk to get some road handling experience. A small fear of the double cardio workout is popping my ticker on a big climb, then having to do the ultimate walk of shame to nearest intersection to wait for an ambulance.

Progress? That's less than five minutes worth of build! :P

Hurry up man!

It would take less than two hours to completely put it together if you really loved it... :wink:

I can't - I'm waiting on my mate to build it, he's got the tools to do it.
If I strip all the running gear off my current ride (the donor bike) I have nothing to ride til this one's built, on Monday!!

Good one milkracer, I do like a nice single speed bike.

Here's my bike with it's new wheels-
Image

Been doing a bit of tweaking today, cranked up the tension release on the pedals and put non-floating cleats on my shoes. Also, the other day I changed the angle of my handlebars. I might have to do a bit of reading to do with cleat positioning. After a bit of mucking around I think I got the positioning right though.

Very nice looking Foil you have there!

I have a new frame in the family. It's an Apollo Artec R Olympic Edition. Frame replaces my Scott CR1 frame that jet star got a little rough with. :( It will eventually be repaired.

Cheers fellas, yeah it's bulls**t fast - stiffness on par with the SST, and a bit heavier, but the aero is definitely noticeable, even sitting steady on 40 it's nice and consistent
