Subscribed. Cool project. Still riding it?

I saw that this thread was updated and started reading through. I do not know what became of Frank Lee, but I hope that he is well, wherever he is.

Edit: I found an explanation, although I honestly did not feel that it was my concern. I still hope that he is well.

I know it's a few years late, but if you're ever heading to the Wisconsin-Illinois-Iowa area there are a few races down there. It's fun to go even if you're not competing because the machines are so interesting.

Just look through WISIL (WI/IN/IL) portions of recumbents.com
HPV Racing and Recumbent Events Updateable Calendar

If you're lucky someone might let you ride their lowracer, as they did me.
