    Achternaaf. De verbrede achternaaf met nu nog 'zwevende' remklauw en tandwiel voor de aandrijving in dubbel lucht configuratie.

    That's all I have to say about that.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    I couldn't have said it better myself.

    Besides, why don't they just order a decent fat bike from the good ol' U.S. of A? Ours are much cooler than their goofy contraption.

    That is a total engineering freak show.

    you'd have to get two flats before it would even matter!

    A real "bagagedrager"

    That thing's gotta weigh over 60 lbs without gear. Yikes. If you read the other web site, he actually rode the contraption across Siberia to Magadan but had some "bike problems" along the way. But I have to salute his engineering and machining skills, however misguided they may seem. Maybe a little too much time was spent in the Amsterdam coffee shops

    i think Rube Goldberg would be proud, it is amazing what one can come up with when you combine long Northern European winters and Hash Bars

    Otta stick to wind mills and tulips and leave winter bike design to someone else.

    Looks like it would take the new Endomorph 24 x 6.2. Nice bike but I'm waiting for the folding version.

    Ah, but that Dutch contraption is much more goofy. Let's see you beat that.

    That dude needs to get a helmet!

    You've got to like a bike that is designed solely around a Truvativ ISIS bottom bracket. Genius.
