    I'm not sure if this is the final incarnation of this bike, but since the riding season is on the backside it will do for now. It's a bit strange to be able to ride right along with new road bikes with no problem. The final weigh in has it at 17.5 lbs and I think that I can still shave off a bit of weight when I tear it down this winter.
    Originally I had this set up as a fixie, but with the cruiser geometry it was a killer on my legs to ride. It now sports a freewheel and a brake. Cheers

    Nice. :D Simple and well executed. I'm building off a similar idea, and I love the name you've given it. I've been toying with the idea of aero wheels, and if you want to call it a salt flat racer, maybe a set of silver aero covers are in need? :mrgreen:
