decided to change the first design [after suggestions from my wife ;) since she is one of my sources for information ] ...

just removed the torus around the cyclist seat to give him a better view...

[quote="Tommy"]What to say??? Outstanding. I think I have no chance with you in this challenge.

In my early days in school when there were a sports meeting I realised I haven't a chance so my aim were to be the last in the competition. It was my way to show of. I feel in some way I got the same wiew in this challenge.

But I will be struggling with my entry. Maybee I will be second or the third or the fourth or......[/quote]

This is how I felt as well before my first try... and guess what... I WON!

You never know until you try and the more you try the better you get...

Besides... I can't win this one because I am hosting ;) I might enter it to see how it goes in the voting but I won't be able to win ;) Just a personal choice to give others a chance to host the next challenge...

started with the terrain now... the forests are petrified tree stumps as hard as stone, might put a giant Stone mushroom in the background as well...

the problem with the conventional bicycle D is that you can not use the weight of your body to push the pedals on a climb. :lol:

true, but with such a low profile, wind resistance will be a lot less than the other designs and with the low weight futuristic materials, you won't need as much powers as todays bicycles...

here is the Umpire Flyer, watching over the participants and providing protection, and they WILL need it in this seen, you'll see [hint: remember the desert boat I did a while ago?]

I choose the tandem bike to be the victim of the desert shark... one of the riders gets flung out of the bike and bits break off...
