The Future of The Prone Bicycle Experiment
Monitoring rider performance to ensure that usage of the bicycle's geometry is sustainable.
(since the initial posting:    FIRST PHASE COMPLETE!     literally thousands of miles were racked up on the prone bike, and results are better than anticipated! )
What could be harder than riding a 90-gear-inch bike with an incredibly aggressive geometry and no seat? Removing the FREEWHEEL! That's right, a "Fixie" version of the project is in the works. Due to the disk brakes, it'll be a flip-crank instead of a flip-wheel, but should be managable with one allen key if the details work out right. EMAIL YOUR VOTE NOW for the best gear ratio of a stand-only "fixie". The present front-runners are 48/15 and 48/17.
(since the initial posting:    SECOND PHASE UNDERWAY!     the fixie completed NYC's 5-boro bike tour to post an impressive 40+ miles in one day, and already has a couple hundred miles under its belt!)
Pending successful testing of a fixed-gear prone bike, production will begin on a shaft drive fixed-only model. After that?
