    It is often described as a clone of Velokraft NoCom, but I believe there are some structural and steering differences.

    That's my bike, built by John Morciglio. I like taking it out George Bush since I can build up a good head of speed without having to worry about traffic or lots of turns. It's a beautful, comfortable, very fast bike. It's easily added 5mph to my speed so far and I still haven't used the last two gears yet. The biggest adjustment has been getting used to the machine *** steering. The bike is fairly twitchy when starting and steering input while cruising needs to be in very small increments. Overall though it's a well made bike and I LOVE IT!!! Engyo, if you want to give it a test ride send me a PM.

    Hardin, I might beg you for a ride if you don't mind and I'm in the area. I don't have the money now, but I've been talking to John about buying one for a while now. Is yours a double or single chainring?

    By all means. Send me a PM and I'll give you my phone number. It's a double chain ring.
