Not sure why you'd post this in the Winter Cycling forum . . . it's summer there.:D
just read the article, very neat, makes me want to give the north pole a try ...
I wonder about the exposed low-hanging RD. Slipping within some ice rubble can easily kill the cage and then how to fix it given restrictions on hand exposure under such conditions? I thought one could come up with a less vulnerable transmission.

I just learned that this bike is nothing new. According to Simon Rakower on the Icebike e-mail list, this bike has been around for 20 years.
You can buy it (http://www.fortunehanebrink.com/specs/sales2/) for 3K.

i've done some research on riding to the south pole, and to me it seems like this bike would be the last thing you want. a pugsley or moonlander would be much better

Something is missing on the bike..
Where is the mount for a ulock in case polar bears try to steal her bike?
