Nice man.

 

Yeah, there some nice trails around england/UK, I do that nromally too, some downhill, but prefer trails. Thinking of getting a new bike, not to sure which yet, (could do with a 150 a/d char to sell, to cover the cost of the damn thing..) Looking for one around £800. (1600$) :)

 

I've done some cycling too, mainly for charity. (One in china, one in US.). That was road stuff though, not as fun. :hug:

Although I like cycling, I've heard it makes the muscles in your legs stronger but less flexible, I usually don't bother going out to find a trail. I live in a rural community, there are some pretty nice spots, but I'm too lazy to go find them :D

 

Personally though, I'd prefer cross-country running, or martial arts.

kk. :P then a picture of you riding it please? ^^

Unfortunately, these are the only pictures I have of myself riding on a Flevoracer. :P

(That was my previous one, which was stolen last Summer. :()

I bought the red Flevoracer three months ago, last Saturday I put spd pedals on it and I made my first long trip; 160 km (~100 miles), average speed 27.4 km/h (~17 mph), cruising speed above 30 and up to 40 km/h (19-25 mph).

 

Some youtubes I found:

  • is a nice first-person video of someone riding on a Flevoracer. :P
  • In this video (about halfway) you can see the steering principle; steering is done with the legs.
    The bike in this video is the original Flevobike model, with 20" wheels; the racer version of the Flevobike has 26" or 28" wheels (mine has 28" racing wheels).

Lawl, do you talk about me often? You find the weirdest things when your search for your name on these forums...
