Indeed. He is a squished-down nurk of the first order. Dual-700 would, I'm sure, work fine for us
non-vertically-challenged types, but that would cost a Several of our Britons' pounds which I cannot
afford, chiz.

That bike is a pretty amazing piece of engineering. I can't imagine that the advantages of a 700c
would outweigh the extra height of such a vehicle. It would be interesting to see the results
though. Craig (also not height challenged but would rather not try to straddle a 700c tire while
sitting on the ground and moving at 30+ mph.)

There'd be no particular advantage either way for me and Dave- we both derive from the genus ****
sapiens biguglygalootus... we're around 6-foot-4. Rob English is 5-foot-7. I was thinking of what to
do with all the 700C wheels that are sitting around the house.

Rename them ISO 622-mm wheels? ;)

There's a couple 26/26 Bachetta clones in the Portland gang already. I want to build something no
one else will want to build.

Pop a couple in the post? I've recently acquired a 51% controlling interest in a Ridgeback Day '01
(flat bar upright), which requires a pair of wheels and a saddle to render it mobile...
