New 26 inch (ETRTO 559) carbon double front fork with V-brake pivots developedTo enable an even lighter end result of our recumbents with 26 inch (ETRTO 559) front wheel, we have been developing for the last months a new type of carbon front fork.
The fork is suitable for all Titanium and Cr-Mo models with 26 inch front fork and the M5 Carbon High Racer. It's an M5 design double front fork, connected to a carbon 1 1/8 threadless head tube. We have chosen for the aeroshape comparable to the earlier developed 28 inch (ETRTO 622) front fork for the High Racer.
The V-brake pivots flow into the surface of the fork smoothly, thus avoiding the use of excess material.

The weight of this highly stable 100% carbon MTB fork is just 545 grammes, being one of the lightest of it's type. The used type is carbon is 12 D in matted finish. Estimated availability mid-January 2008. Price will be equal to the 20 and 28 inch version.

Greg Gross participates in the Texas Time TrialsLast week Greg Gross participated in a 4-man recumbent only team in the Texas Time Trials, an event that draws riders from all over the country. It is a tough course: 20 mile loops done 25 times for a distance of 500 miles total. The course has 1000 feet of climbing for each loop. Greg rode the M5 TiCa Low Racer that he purchased from Garrie Hill. On his first lap, he beated the standing lap time record by 1m15s, beating the previous record of 51:30. He was also told he had an unofficial record of most consecutive loops completed in under an hour, with 5 of his 6 laps. Lap times were 50:15, 52, 57, 55, 57, and 1:03.
