This is Chris Robin. He built his own Hour Record bike in the style of Graeme Obree's “Old Faithful” which was featured on RTBL last year in its early stages. Looks like the bike has come a long way since its balsa wood core.

« I don’t know who is more foolish. The fool or the one following the fool… I suppose i am a bit of a fool. I’ve spent nine months building this thing, and here I am in a car heading up to Falun to take it for a ride. So yeah, I guess that probably makes me a bit of a fool… »

I’ve been e-mailing a bit with Chris so stay tuned to see more of this project in the very near future.
