And I'll be back in Chi for the NACCCs and some track racing, then in NY for a while, then back to Caracas, then to Fiji. Life is tough, what can I say?

Holy fuck I love that spencer with the side car!
Does anyone know how to go about making something like that.

I don't exactly know how but I could wing it and get something working. It's not like a complex idea or anything. Keep welding until it works.

That's the only good use of the gold DA lockring I've ever seen.
I'd have used the gold cog though.

"The E-V Sunny Solar Bicycle has solar panels built into the wheels, which maintain a constant charge to the batteries. When you don't feel like pedaling the spencer is powered by a 500 watt front hub motor. It'll get you up to about 18 mph, and even faster if you fall off a cliff. The catch is that it weighs 75 lbs., so you're gonna need to use that motor unless you have legs like mighty oaks. A new one costs $1295, and kits to solarize your own spencer start at $795. I remember the first time I got on a spencer and realized that you have to pedal them to go. What a letdown that was. I thought they were silent motorcycles for people who weren't into wearing leather."

I'm confused about that fixie inc. spencer.

I like the frame with the rust/polished stainless.
I don't like the bikes for heros thing.

I like the retro rust/leather/wood.
I don't like that mixed with a belt drive.

wtf is up with a belt drive?

I like the 25ft view.
I don't like the fucking no-flip 'n chops.

Crazy man's TT spencer. All about aero.
Top bar is for a version of the legendary Obree superman position, the bottom seems to be too low and the wrong angle. Probably only meant for a standing start.
Talking about Obree, it is pretty similar to Old Faithful:

Full marks for having the balls to build it whoever the crazy man was.

Is there a purpose for the S&S coupler on the seat stay of that fixie inc. spencer?

# THIS spencer HAS DONE ABOUT 500 METRES AND RIDES SILKY SMOOTH. I HAVENT PUT BRAKE PADS ON, AS I DIDNT WANT TO MARK THE PAINT ON THE RIMS. PAINT WORK IS IMMACULATE AND VERY PINK.
# THIS spencer WOULD ALSO LOOK GREAT HANGING IN A CAFE OR SHOP.
