BMW's 2011 bicycle range includes M division designed Carbon Racer - Image 2 of 5
I wouldnt even consider putting an engine on a bike like that......maybe a friction drive or an electric wheel drive but no way a mid mounted engine, a China girl would damage that frame IMO......
I know carbon fiber is very strong material and it may actually work with a shock absorbing mounting system of some sort, but I think I'll just stick with a steel frame bike myself.
Very cool looking bike though, and very expensive too I would imagine.
From what I read, carbon fiber is very strong but not as springy as steel. It can also get brittle in cold weather, I believe. I seem to remember watching a TV program about a guy looking to set a downhill bicycle speed record on a carbon fiber racing bike. He made his attempt during cold weather. The resulting crack-up put him in the hospital. I'm still making up my mind about carbon fiber bikes.
That '"glossy chocolate" with gold accents' bike on link is aluminum, not carbon fiber. It's also $1750! It would almost be a crime to put a chinagirl on that beaut IMHO lol
