I'm designing a new bicycle project, to be launched on Kickstarter next summer. Please become a part of the design process by sharing your feedback in this brief survey:

Both this and the Kickstarter I posted have the same problem. Namely hitting a pot hole at greater than 10mph with solid small-diameter wheels. It won't work.

Might be a mute point, I don't suspect it will have a top speed approaching 10 mph.

But you have to appreciate the physics involved, small wheels, or otherwise.

so this guy eric has a link to his website but when you click it takes you to a password screen stating it is a private blog........ is that kinda like only wanting feed back on your design from your mommy cause you know she'll say nice things?
