Effectively it's an ancient design. Getting on for 30 years ago Tony Foale built the Quantum and Q2 bikes.



These, unlike the fantasy bit of modern computer graphics, were actually cut out of steel, fabricated and ridden.

Shows what a dead end modern motor bicycle design has become doesn't it?

Do you even ride a "motor bicycle"? Or are you just QPaule, HM's GMP of the UK?

A motorised bicycle? No. They are a grim historic throw-back that I have thankfully managed to excuse myself from.

I ride a PTW that looks like my avatar.
