Here's an early pic to show off the coroplast fairings:

BTW the name "Reta" stands for "renewable energy transportation alternative."

No way dude! I still have the tica and it will be my speed bike. The CA is just for randonneuring. I didn't have the money for the M5 highracer, though I think the B will be better for rando anyway.

My newly acquired ActionBent.. changed the bike from USS to OSS, swap fork to a titanium disc fork, DuraAce 165mm trple crankset.. Still trying to figure out a better way to route the chain through idler, eliminate the plastic chain tubes, still a work in progress.

Here is a picture of Feng Huo Lun, and Toronado. Both home made, also the panniers and clothes.
There are more pictures here: http://ollypowell.wordpress.com/about-the-bike/ and here http://picasaweb.google.com/ollybike/BikeBuilding

I'm making some changes to make them a bit faster. (Lower seat angle, wheel spats, improved fairing, electric motor, solar module).
Hoping to make Darwin-Adelaide in five days in 2009.

What, no recumbent grin for you even with a $4000 bike?
I thought recumbent riding is a happy thing.. no need for bird flipping.

perhaps he is showing the effects of what happens on that bike at high speeds during cold weather and he had given a roadie the bird during a high speed pass and his finger froze in that position

He's annoyed because somebody stole most of the spokes out of his wheels

Mayby tilting that helmet down so it covers some of your forehead would make you seem more hardcore..

Cool bike, but long tights with sandles kinda give away that hardcore image, maybe..
