I think the frame is to hide the motor, mechanical doping is the way forward, that way don't need pedals

Someone let their 6yr old have design input? Cause it looked cool on their hot wheels so must look good on a $15k bike

Can't see it getting UCI approval.

Are bikes for triathlon UCI approved?

I think we will only see a few Japanese using this and maybe a Pro.

Thats gotta be a 30K bike

Is it actually a "real bike" or a prototype.  Plenty of prototypes come out of places like Specialized but never go into production, and some like the Diamondback Andean do go into production but probably shouldnt. Great way to send a small company bust I reckon.

Nahj I know Tanaka that is the man behind Ceepo, he's a man all about the people. I would be surprised if this isn't $14k or under... Unless it's one of his whacky prototypes he puts out there... 

Actually, I'm going to ask him to lend me one to ride in Busso. How many people will stop me, laiugh at me or think "since when were wales allowed to enter IM" :lol: IS there a fat mans category?

At the moment no, but they are starting to get closer.

I need my eyes tested. It looks like a 700 on the front and a 650 on the back.

It's the fairing mudguard that makes it look bigger.

The design of getting rid of the forks is cool in regards to aero.

I like it.

it is an interesting thought experiment.

I wonder what would be more aero, if they could bring the stiffness up of the horizontal fork, then would it be better to fair the front of the wheel, or the rear? (ie, would you want the tyre to be the first thing breaking wind, or the fairing? if you only faired half the wheel)

Also does the front fairing work with or against the $2500 front wheel?
