Seems like it should work but I wonder if there is an issue with the strength of the bolts near the seat cluster.Newsboy said:

that's UnoPete's bike. I rode with him at last years' Bikes n Beers ride in the OC. Maybe it was '02? Cool bike and the design seems to be holding up.riderx said:Can't remember his screen name off the top of my head, but Peter posts on here occasionally.

The bike is pretty still. Not much flex. I'd do a few things different next time but the design is solid. I made the fillets a little too small so I'm a little nervous about some of them but the adjustment method works fine. I just finished a new frame last month that is pretty radical but haven't posted pictures yet. I'm over in Japan for 6 months and won't be able to build it up for a couple of months.Hollywood said:that's UnoPete's bike. I rode with him at last years' Bikes n Beers ride in the OC.

got your ears on Pete?
Still haven't traveled with it but I did take apart once and forced it into an airline legal box to see if it would fit. The front fork was the toughest part to get into the box. I did get it to fit though.DancingBear said:I remember when you first built that frame, it is quite a nifty design. Good to hear that it is holding up nicely. I really like its ability to break down for travel. Do you think the design might be refined and brought to market?
Thanks. Work brought me to Japan. I'm in Tokyo so riding is hoping on a Surly Cross Check and weaving in and out of traffic, sprinting out of lights, and hopping on and off the sidewalk. It's really pretty flat in the city. Outside the city there are some trails but that only works on weekends. City riding is more interesting that straight road riding but it's not at all like riding on the trails. You make do with what you have.SS Jerry said:Great use of the mind. Looks very nice and you should be proud to have something that is so unique. One Off.
All the best in the future. Why are you in Japan? Work?
