    A simple

    beater project from Canada:

    http://www.queuebert.com/other/bicycle/

    I started rolling my eyes at about where he describes having to plan and manufacture custom disk mounts for wheels... which required building custom forks as well, no biggie for him apparently.

    One thing's for sure: the bike is one of its kind.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    That's a sweet ride.

    Obviously, he works in a machine shop.
    He should be designing bikes.
    I'd say he missed his calling.
    That's gonna leave a mark.

    The only question I have is how much does it WEIGH? It looks pretty darn heavy... although he used a lot of aluminum and titanium, so maybe not.

    Yeah, well if you had SolidWorks and a CNC machine at your disposal, it might not be so hard for you either.

    He did well. It's a pretty bike.
