@trplay. first of all, nice bike!

Second, that bike has me puzzled...(been staring at it for quite a while now). Where is the pivot point of the front wheel in order to steer? looks like it is at knee-height/length, but my knees to not bend sideways...so how do you keep your feet clipped in while turning? and are there no traction issues with the drive wheel at the front?

Many questions, but hey, it is an intriguing bike!

And,just to beat Jon or Chris to it: Thanks for posting the pictures!
(sorry, Jon/Chris couldn't resist.... Love your commitment to keep involved!)

Thanks for asking. It's called a Moving Bottom bracket (MBB) and perhaps not as strange as you first think. In fact you might have first learned how to pedal on a MBB. Many get their start on a MBB (tricycle). Turning is done by leaning more than turning the handlebars (Just like on a "standard" bike"). A short turning video Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlZU2YPlSxs It is a fast, aerodynamic bike and a Flo 90 on the front is just going to make it faster!
