    So much intelligence and talent going to waste because folks are locked in the dead end DF paradigm instead of being open to the infinite possibilities of innovative HPV design. I would love to see some of the new products of Paulo Camasmie (Catrike), Jim Parker (Cruzbike), or Randy Schlitter (RANS) highlighted. Or even more shocking – a velomobile. Nah, retro paint jobs are where the money is.

    There’s no one banning ‘bent builders from participating. Maybe those actively involved in the recumbent community could encourage recumbent builders to participate next year…

    Beautiful bikes–but the video is a bit annoying. Too many close-ups without enough general context/bike overview shots. Yeah, cool seat tube, but what the hell does the bike look like?! I gave up after a few minutes.

    The film was a feast of detail, a perfect celebration of great craftsmanship. But, but, but, Michael, you cheated us too. One needs to see each bike in it’s entirety in a way which shows the riding position it offers. Bits of a bike all lead to the posture a bike invites you to adopt as you ride. What is that posture?

    As someone especially interested in the stately sit-up bikes in the classic European mode, its essential for me to see the whole bike, not to guess at it.

    Now, I realize that what I ask might have been hard in that cluttered envt. of the show, but towards the end you did offer an almost whole bike shot or two.

    I believe that sit-up had a key role to play in getting non riders onto bikes, that they fly a different flag, that they say to the Mum on the sidewalk, the guy in his car, “come ride with me.” Mike Rubbo
