    Do you have to use a left side drivetrain with it.
    Speaking of which, did they ever make a multispeed bike with left side drive(derailleur or otherwise)?

    If they did, I'm sure Velobike has one, or at least pictures of one.

    While you were working on the mods, you could have added rear suspension.

    The lefty (or righty) front fork was great, but the rear suspension has me sold. I want one.

    Don't use that bike for big jumps.

    It is not widely known but there is a fault with the differential spigot nut on the foophle valve. It is inadequately sintered and under extreme impact forces has been known to revert to its powder form.

    This causes the rider to slip backwards off the saddle but then lurch forward only to suffer gonadic extrophy from the Brookes saddle springs. This ends his riding career but equips him for a job as vocalist in a boy band. What happens to a female rider can't be discussed in a polite forum but is commonly called "goosing".

    And everyone knows you need big balls to do big jumps.

    Man, everyone knows, the industry already told us it's too difficult to do from an engineering standpoint.

    I tried when I was putting it together, but they were right, it is way too difficult....

    Looks like brighter minds than mine have the problem licked though, good show!
