it's a very enjoyable ride. i've imagined it would be fun to "upgrade" to 349 wheels. maybe a 3 speed hub. some primo comets or other similar skinny slicks. a lighter, more efficient crankset- maybe sugino track cranks. bullhorn bars.. what do you think?

Mine cost 50 pounds NEW. So I could have spared some upgrade cash! Thinner tyres would have helped. Very slow if the tyre pressure dropped. Agree comets or kojack and a better crank would have helped. Along with better brake pads and cables. There was a three speed available. Single speed is not optimal on a bike with a short wheelbase. It was quite light also.

radnabel folding recumbent. gorgeous machine with loads of impressive details. luxuriously long wheelbase and a very compact folded size of 72cm x 84cm x 28cm. check their website for other equally impressive models.

Geez... looks great. Almost looks like a Brompton on steroids in the semi-folded position!

Same here! :p

However, I think the rider (pilot?) of that rig has a goal of being hardcore tucked and aero.... that thing appears to be a straight line speed machine... check out the MASSIVE chainring and single rear cog! Salt flat racer anyone? :speedy:

needs disc wheels and sitting in a fairing, then you need the frontal area reduced,
so the whole thing gets tossed overboard, and you start with a Low racer recumbent ..

Yea, But Don Vesco died a while ago.. he made the vacuum for John to follow behind..

but the team he built lives on http://www.teamvesco.com/

& John Howards motor paced record was broken. by Fred Rompelberg http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fastest...d_on_a_bicycle

It's definitely a Twenty. Crazy idea. That guy is going to die.

I'm guessing the guy got one letter wrong and it was supposed to be "Shopper"... like this.

Don't know about the wheels, but the frame is Kimori, a japanese brand.

Those are painted Aerospoke wheels. The frame appears to be a modified Moulton maybe? I only found that pic when browsing various bike blogs, and unfortunately, I don't recall which blog.
