Alan B wrote:Question 3 is the more interesting one. Hopefully they have a prototype soon to answer it.
Danimal, Any rough idea when you will have these in production? And do you have a finalized design yet?
Also, will you offer them without the swing arm? Or build a custom swing arm? The wheel I have in mind won't fit a standard swing arm
Have you investigated shipping costs yet?
1) Please explain why you switched from light weight carbon fiber composite to heavy Crmoly?
2) Did the carbon fiber prototype have any issues in the design, construction, or durability in field testing?
3) What is the total weight difference between these two bikes when using same weight components & parts using Crmoly vs Carbon Fiber?

"Any pictures with the side panals on?"
"is there a chance u could make a cutout (on the top of the frame ) for the buttons and screen of the CA?"

By the way, maybe I missed it, what is the cost looking like for the bare frame un-painted?? ------- EDIT: Found it thanks!-----
This thing and a Cro-Motor with around 44.4V and like 35AH would be an AWESOME high speed trail machine!!
