    I noticed you need a wall to lean it against when you stop. No sidestand. And you have to buy a helmet you can't afford and may not fit your head shape.
    Other than that it's interesting. No luggage attachment points?

    Just because you can build it, doesn't mean you should.

    it looks like a lego bike: its design recalls a toy, in some way it embodies the true meaning of riding a motorcycle.

    an italian composer, Luigi Nono, used to say that if you can think a sound as composer you have the duty to make it.
    as you see it's another, diametrically opposed opinion and both are equally valid.

    In that case, the Hypertek bike would be perfect for you if it had a hole in the seat.

    The new C8 mid-engine Corvette had the design specification that it had to be attractive to a ten year old boy. Really, it was a mandate to make it that way.

    I will test this statement with Mrs. Meteor in the coming days. If you no longer hear from me following the coming days, I have enjoyed my time here and your comradery.

    Not a worry. I found that a well fitting leather suit was like a neoprene diving suit and the farts would crawl down the leg or sneak out around the collar.

    ... and you haven't listen the music of Luigi Nono yet.

    in the image you can also see the notation used by Nono to write the music of Prometeo, tragedia dell'ascolto (Prometeo, tragedy of listening)

    I was thinking of Philip Glass when you mentioned your composer. Lots of dissonance composers that are worthy of listening.
    Tones, half tones and such.
    Tuvan throat music has it's devotees too.
    I hear barking dogs too. Sounds like my neighborhood in the evening.

    in the intentions of Nono, the Prometeo should be played in the church of San Lorenzo in Venice, where the doors and the windows are always open so the sound of the water is always present. the idea of silence of Nono was a place full of sound, like the sound of nature. the absolute silence doesn't exists in the nature, it is something that can be made only in the laboratories. the silence of nature is always full of sounds. an american composer of the times of Nono had also written an essay on silence, John Cage, but even if his music was the so called "music of the open windows" his idea of music was at the opposite of the Nono poetics.

    Just an observation - I cant see a place to fit my crash bungs - cos I'm bound to drop it at some stage. And my importantly it seems it's been designed by somebody who doesn't expect to ride in the rain. It looks good though.
