    Another Specialized Specialized! Climbing help for the 50+ crowd.

    This has got to help on those long climbs. I wonder if USA Cycling will let me race on this muth'r.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    Those are fun. Looks odd on a mtn bike though. Tim, our LBS owner, has done a few of these conversions but mostly on vintage cruiser frames.

    You'd run out of fuel on some of the climbs that the 50+ crowd do.

    Looks a bit like some of the setups I saw when I was working in France years ago. They used to call them Mopeds- and were street legal for 16 year olds. As a two Stroke mechanic- I used to be asked to "Tune" some of these mopeds. Problem was that if you gave the moped more power- all that would happen was that the bike found a brick wall quicker as they did not handle very well.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    But as a bike for fetching some pies, a nice basket for the bars and walla!

    I had a friend who died on a Moped. Riding it on an icy day, it slid into a telephone pole. Sad day.

    Yeah, my LBS has some of those too, but not on MTBs. Looks like a good way to burn your leg with how close the exhaust is to the crank.
