  2. why? . . . .
  3. we choose to do these things not because they are easy but because they are hard
  4. I liked the bit where he was boasting about the cost of the bearing while bashing it with a hammer.
  5. Yeah but the hubless wheel is hardly a new idea. In fact I'd say it's a cliche trotted out be every second design student for the past 30 years.

    I do get the custom motorcycle stuff to an extent, but in this case it is a lot of effort and expense for something that is so yawn-worthy.
  6. I would suggest that the gearing ratios on the bike would be a little low.

    Rear brakes anyone?
