Off topic, but ZM, how do you like those Sonidos. I really like that setup. I am going to be trying se thing as soon as i get a chance with FR driver. Sonido is interesting because they make woofer to compliment their FR units.
buzz - we can talk about FR drivers here ......

yes , I like them very much , not just because they're sort of near to me

btw. - it's powder-coated at my friends Stein place - Steintrikes official web pages -=- trike and recumbent place
That turned out rather nice.

How far is it from rolling?

I had my vintage ride out for a spin last week. It's sure a different feeling compared to the modern stuff. Somewhat more relaxed, and a more smooth ride, even with a disc rear wheel.

Does relieving them of their LF duties improve their performance in your opinon? I have a couple of FR drivers that would fo really well in a setup like that. Off topic on topic, i rode all types of bikes, lightspeed, jamis, giant, trek. Ended up on steel Lemond and never looked back. Way too comfortable in comparison to graphite and aluminum and those extra 2-3 lbs were not going to get me in Le Tour. Was going to have custom steel frame made until i had a wreck thT spilt my helmet front to back and caused me ti repeat mysel for 3 hrs. Wife called it after that one.

Nice bike, in particular the old fashioned lugs (I don't like braze welded joints).
BTW, I also own (and use!) a Raleigh bike from the seventies.

Lugs from way back. Russian style.

It was important for the bike to have fenders and mud flaps so as to keep the water spray from rain offa my back - and heavy duty knobby mud tires for extra grip when making turns.
Sooo - loaded up with about 100lbs. (50 kilo) of newspapers - start pumping the bike up to speed - knobby tires humming on the pavement - I would blast down the neighborhood sidewalks and pathways slinging papers up on peoples porches. Every now and again I would nail a lazy cat asleep on the porch - or a glass milk bottle awaiting a replacement from the milk man the next morning.

THAT ISA BIKE!!!!

alas - these photo's are not of a bike I have in my possession but rather provided by web sites where people go as waco crazy about old bikes as some of us are crazy about old audio gear......

Offfffffff course this is a different mindset of bicycle craziness - big iron - chrome plated - USA bike doing it's best impression of being a 1959 Cadillac limo with 1 ft. (1 meter) tail fins as compared to classic Porsche 356 or MG - TF.

I like those 4 wheels bikes ...

Click the image to open in full size.

ZM : Nice frame ... I know that "the greater the odds the greater the challenge" but If you need some parts (a bike without wheels and pedals is half the fun ) ... just ring ... It will make Magura happy ...
