funny, we all think that we need aluminum, titanium, and carbon to improve our bikes…. all we really need is bamboo! go figure.


i remember flying to a foreign country for the first time. as we approached the airport we could see the people in the nearby towns; farming rice, and driving in small utility vehicles the size of go carts.  at that moment my first thought was: “wow, there is a whole other world going on without me”.  well, that’s the same thought i had when i found this link. i never thought that the chain was an option to the bike design. pretty cool…. i’ll have to bring a few into my shop for people to tryout. oh wait a minute i don’t have a shop…. yet :)



i wonder if this bike will support a fatso like me?

that front wheel looks pretty unstable, but at least there is no chance of me getting my toes stuck in the front wheel :)
