That reminds me of this, the Moots bike designed for a ride across the arctic circle.

I like the setup, both wheels are made to be rear wheels.

For the Idatabike race, the short course is 100miles the loop is 350 I think and then the whole run for the crazy dog sled teams is 1100 miles. I'd love to try that in the sand. Look at the monster sub zero shock cylinders... or are they coffee thermoses...batteries? The dual backup/redundant wheel thing is brilliant!!

Propane

I never noticed the backup wheel thing until Pyze mentioned it; truly brilliant.

Whoever said today was gonna be crazy in the shops? I did my usual complete last minute shopping extravaganza in 3 hours this morning/afternoon. Even had time for a haircut. The core is dead. Good times!
it looks like they're designed to work on any english threaded cog, assuming you use a 3/32 chain. they mentioned that they have a lock ring designed to work with these as well.

i managed to make it to the lcbo today as i end up going into one every christmas eve and it is madness.

they really look to me like thermoses, but you never know.

EDIT: oh and the built-in racks are just awsome.

what, you mean like with car battery and booster cables?

i'd say one of those stove top grillers (pan w/ grill humps) will do nicely. sear on both sides and finish in the oven to desired doneness. may i also suggest dropping a little bit of herbed goat's cheese on top when done, or perhaps some garlic butter. enjoy.

A regular cast iron pan works well also using the same technique. Be prepared for lots of smoke though!

Alton Brown's recipe is the only one anyone should ever use when attempting to cook nice steak indoors without professional equipment.
