    That is an insane wheel build. There is no point with this bike, that is what makes it so great.

    Build it because you want to and you can... The spirit of invention... It seems like he/they didn't have the gearing correctly for stress on the cranks... by his French disappointment there at the end, it looked and sounded as though they were toast...

    Any body else notice that it was a SS... Just another crazy biking SSer w/ too much time on his hands.

    BTW- Gear ratio was way to low.

    Did you hear the one about the guy on his death bed that said "I wish I would have worked more and rode my bike less". Said NO ONE EVER. -Jeff Scott

    Once he got going, first thing I thought was "his seat height ain't very productive" then "what about a 1X9".
