It seems odd to me they state this is the only design providing a vertical axis for the wheel, though Ihave always believed the Bimota design achieved the same. Is anybody into this that can educate me in this regard?. I would really like to know more about it.

Cheeky. I know what it says, but nevertheless, there's nothing in any of that swingarm, shock or rod mounting that allows for any turning.

If they ever actually build it (or just a prototype) I'd really like to take a look, cos if it really will look like that, I want to know how the hell they do it!!

Thanks I enjoyed all the info and pics available on the site. I wasn't familiar with Mr. Foale. I wish his site listed specs for the various bikes. I'm curious how much a QL or Q2 weighs.

I had tried to e-mail him; but for some reason I keep getting error messages. Here's another interesting site: http://www.allamericanracers.com/alliga ... rides.html
