here is a link mate............... to a good ole Aussie dealer in yer neck of the woods.
They also sell velokraft carbon lowracers............ beautiful machines........ but maybe a bit too much machine for just comuting back and forth to work. It sounds like the perfect place though to open a lowracer up though, a paved bike path running along side an expressway? Perfect lowracer territory.
Oh yeah......... here's an idea though for really fast commuting. Velokraft makes a luggage tailbox that flying furniture I'm sure sells that will fit the vk2 or a baron. Heres a link to it from Dana's website. You could pack yer lunch in there, shoes, pants, shirt.......watermelon........oh yeah some afternoon lunch break beer........ you get the idea. Oh here's the catch........ the tailbox will reduce some drag and make the bike even more efficient especially in a head wind.......... side winds and the box acts like a sail and propels you along. I generally only ride with tailbox's now. Faster and I have places to put my hyrdration, tools and such out of the airstream.
I like the description......... who says lowracers aren't for commuting. I say its the fastest darn comuter out there.
Here's a link to what the tailbox looks like fitted to a bike. The tailbox opens up ........flip lid then latches back down. We had a guy ride his vk2 over 900 miles to a bent rally last year. He had 80lbs worth of junk in the back of his vk2 tailbox. This poor guy had over 14% hills to climb with all that weight too!
just scroll down through the list and you will find some pics of the tailboxes mounted. I don't like the looks of the original red one, the new carbon colored ones are a bit updated.
