Had no problem viewing it.

Thor: You sound just like you write!

Even the "look" was just as I had pictured.

Took me back to the old days of Radio, and the early days of TV, when we got to see what all the "imagined" radio personalities really looked like....lol

Thanks Yan for posting the link.

Interviewer pronounces the name "Thor", whereas Thor would probably say "Tor".

Those are good racks indeed, i like those swapables bags / baskets that can attach to the rack directly without elastic bands or tools.

but i'd rather have the rack attached to the frame, rather than the seat post.

I slide my seat post up and down a lot, so when it's not attached to the seat post, that rack falls back, and that is inconvenient.

Basically it comes down to, i like to be able to fold me bike and bag it up in under 10sec

But yeah, cool indeed! Plus it looks sturdy enough to suffer through being bounced around on the bike racks on the bus.

*adds to Xmas wish list*
