    How about that poor guy 1:10 into the video? That wasn't just a pass, that was a fly-by. Where was the barrel roll?

    I was actually surprised by the number of supportive comments. I can see that many of the posters will be coming over...

    That thread is nice chance to turn them to our side.

    Good job!

    Yeah, ya know... I don't care if they actually want one for themselves, what gripes me is the name-calling and the slanted portrayal of bents' weaknesses. I noticed in that thread the few comments like that were dismissed in favor of the 'cool' comments.

    I read that forum, too; but I try to keep it 'pure' for them and leave the recumbent talk here.

    Did he email you? I'm wondering why the link to his pic disappeared.
