That's Aaron, the owner of my LBS here in Seattle. www.rideyourbike.com.
He rides that thing all over town, puts lots of miles on it.

I was thinking the same thing, but it looks as if there is some kind of clamp on the seat post type deal on the bottom bike.

The owner/builder, Aaron Goss from Seattle, was at pains to note that his conversion did no damage to the classic Colnago frame.

I saw that bike and its rider at this years dead baby downhill race in seattle. I was quite impressed with the thought and reversibilty built into it.

If you are tall like me, you can just give it a lil' push with your left foot on the left pedal and hop right on. Took about 1 day to get used to it, now it is really easy.
