Re: drag bikes???
I think "drag bikes" will become a growing segment of the motorbicycling phenom because, like with cars you can tell if a change helped or hurt performance. If set up for say 1/10 of a mile-528 feet-one city block, red light to red light from a standing start. This tests everything on the bike and it's not far to walk back home when the bike breaks.
I'm going to redo "The California Kid" into a "drag bike" configuration and call it "The Inch Pincher" after a famous VW air-cooled drag car. Anybody wanna race? Happy Trails Walter F.
