    May not be the most apropriate site for this kind of build , but its the one i love and post on .

    Any speed freaks out here?:39: a build off of contraptions to make personal speed record would be awesome !
    recumbent/lowracers/trackbikes etc..
    things build specificaly for speed.:nerd:
    No high tech parts required.:shake:
    high gearing, muscle power and aerodinamic are the key :nod:

    if there was enough interest...
    maybe we could beg for a division in one of the next build offs. A speed freak bike could literally be defined as a muscle bike, or we could build in the WBO... I'd jump in either way, I have an exerciser bike gear just crying out to be mobile.

    This idea makes me think of the gravity racer built in the last M.B.B.O.
    Might be a fun one to watch.

    I'm guessing if you started to build one and then stopped, technically it'd be an :eek: unfinished build... I'm planning a Burrito in the upcoming WBO from the frame of the only build I ever failed at. Nothing stopping me from making a "speed freak" out of it. Like I said before, I got a big exerciser gear just waiting...

    You talking a complete exercise bike with plastic side covers and all, making it mobile? That would be awesome.

    Maybe a set of kid 12" wheels, rear right under the seat, front kicked out a little to clear the covers. A working control panel, or at least one that lights up would take it over the top.
