Graeme Obree

Any one have any info/specs on Obree's Old Faithful? I was interested in building a replica for s&g's. I'm talking about this bike...

I think if you build that bike, it would be cool to add a sloping top tube to it, probably wouldn't add very much weight.

It would be cool with ape hangers and a banana seat too

Obree's bike

I guess it would be tricky to incorporate the narrow "washing machine bearing" bottom bracket but as that was a crucial part of the design it would be essential in a replica
