    I agree, and it would make it more stable without the imbalance of weight.

    At the end: "He could barely keep control of that thing!"

    Says it all for me.

    More on show than go. One needs to hear one of the engines in person to realize that the neighbors and law enforcement will take a dim view of any trips around the block, basically an off road/closed course use bike if I ever saw one.

    Yup. Those things are *so* incredibly loud ...

    They also don't make a whole lot of thrust. (But they'll make it even at high speeds!) Given that the pedals are blocked, the rider probably would have to walk the bike up a 10% grade if he didn't get enough of a running start. That said, it wouldn't surprise me if that thing could get him up to 50 or 60 mph on level ground given a long straight run -- I guess that bike has a coaster brake? I wouldn't trust that!

    Loud? Control? This magnificent man has put a jet engine on a bicycle as a testament of how many F's he gives. Coincidentally, that's 0.

    Interesting bike, but once I saw the term "pulse jet", I had to check out that website. All those bikes but no mention of anyone building their own V-1 buzz bomb? You'd think that would be the first thing they'd do.
