Update SS HT MTB

Excellent for winter riding in the wet!
Front: bottle-mudguard in fluorescent pink for extreme visibility at night!
Gearing is 32:17 which is good on slight climbs, and out of the saddle workouts on longer climbs but still to low on flats or slight declines.
May drop down to 16 on the back...not sure how much difference that would make.
Considering going to 1/2 link bmx chain to lose the chain tensioner don't now if that would work either. Anyone?

I found this pretty cool..,28348,...

If I didn't actually enjoy the thrill of pushing myself hard whilst commuting to work, this would actually be pretty good.

I reckon it'd be perfect for those who don't have the luxuries of showers at work.. and can get into work on a bike sweat free?

I like the regenerative braking system. Thats clever.

huh, cheaper than all our bikes too! Smiling

I'd never use it, but hey, if it gets more people on bikes, then all the better.
