Very fast. :D
So this qualifies as "Fredly"?
Pretty much the same as DF's- here , there and everywhere.
He has some tweaks that he'll do to help make the bike fit you, but it's not like the frames are made-to measure as the adjustability is built in.
So true. My longer wheelbase, more slack raked M5 is a lot more of a handful than my P-38. Go figure.
Oh Cheezus. :rolleyes:
It's the curl or vorticity of a flow field. (yes, I spend a lot of time thinking about aerodynamics)
^^^ That too. When you call Lightning with a question or to order something, you usually wind up talking to the owner/ designer- Tim Brummer. Totally unlike the usual DF purchasing experience.
Yes they can be all composite, but it's the designer's choice as to where the advantages of the the material are best applied. Mesh seat frames are one place where it probably doesn't make much sense...
+1. Not just Vets, Cowboy. Anyone who cares about living in a free society. Anyone.
It is really easy, and Constitutional, to have phones turn off (except for 911 calls) when in motion. Wanna...
Are there levels of Fredliness? Or is it just a you are/you aren't kind of thing.
Based on my P-38 experience, the vid is pretty accurate. It's a good climber and Tim's a strong cyclist. It most likely went down as Stephen H said.
Easy, this: A Lightning P-38. Comfortable, reasonably fast, handles well. A great "all arounder".
Too small and too far away. Lately, I've just been attaching 3" pocket mirrors to my glove with velcro. Wouldn't work well on an upright, but it's perfect on a recumbent.
Ok, fair 'nuff. So for me I was 30 when I bought my Ryan. Love at first sight.:love:
Lucky you! But #2 daughter has you beat- Gritters lowracer at age 9 :D
With recumbent racing, it's also how much wattage you are capable of throwing down without losing it- it's just that the speeds are higher.
The P-38 and the carbon P-84 are both known as good...
So, looking to get to the controles really early, are you? :D
Voila! P-38 with a hard shell seat:
Correct. I wouldn't expect much difference with an F-40 though.
The front "bubble" doesn't add much to the length and the seat is the only vertical clearance issue with these.
Also Tim is...
Or he's channeling Mies van der Rohe- then, less is more. ;)
My personal pet peeve is the phrase: "I could care less" . Yes, maybe you do care somewhat, but I don't; so I say: "I couldn't care less".
For everyone's amusement:
Not the fighter aircraft.
I believe so but you'll have to fold down one of the back seats and maybe remove the front wheel- no biggie. Fits in my Suburban just fine with the middle row seat folded down.
