1% of the world's population can think "Outside the box". The rest are firmly stuck within the box. Where are you?

Matt - It looks great in the pedal-powered mode and very serious. Are those the 20" rims you have custom ordered and offered for sale? And please also let us know the changes to the chainring and freehub.

Yes that is the same rim as the group buy rims are.

Those cranks I had lying around. They are fsa carbon cranks.

Well, since the yellow trike is gone (sniff, sniff) I am moving forward on the Cannondale Hooligan build as my next flagship demo bike. So, to that end, I had Tommy from FFR trikes obtain a set of very custom wheels for me from Industry 9. These wheels use my 47mm wide rim in the rear and a Sun Ringle 40mm wide (IIRC) Envy front rim laced to I9's heavy duty hubs by way of custom length downhill (.110" thick) red spokes. It took a month for them to make these for me. But, the wait was worth it. They are lighter than my previous rims and I am sure they are stronger.

This bike will receive a new style motor (not telling about that just yet) and, most likely, a radical new drive based on my DaVinci (also not saying anything about that yet). :mrgreen:

I expect it to take about a month to get more goodies on hand for this and about 2 months before the motor is ready (maybe more).

I will keep you posted.

Matt

Wow those red spokes literally look unreal... like they are photoshopped in.

Nice looking bike!
1st build: Dahon Jetstream folding bike. Quick, reliable, capable of 32mph. Light enough to lift, folds for easy transport by car/bus/train.
2nd build: RC powered 2009 Norco A-Line. Top speed 39mph. Built like a tank, it's resistant to Boston potholes, can stop on a dime, easily goes up/down curbs when necessary.
3rd build (just started): Scratch build ultimate utility bike. Based on a common power module using a NuVinci left side freewheel.
