Default 2 cool!!!

Tyerslider from firebelly cycles turned me on to this Google SketchUp It is awesome and works really really well!! Not kidding and is perfect for what we do. It is a 3D drawing/rendering program

I have been trying to explain my design for a 2 speed auto motorized bicycle tranny for months to folks on the phone and in text. Drew it up today in 2 hrs as I was trying to learn the program at the same time/ Can do some amazing things!

Google SketchUp (From their web site)
