maybe turn them on their sides and attach a hub motor courtesy of the UCI, and you have a manned bicycle drone copter.

Update: What's Going On With Shimano's New XTR Group?
They should have dropped this news release at about 3:30PM this coming Sunday so it would get buried in the Super Bowl coverage.

Review: The Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
@iJak: Right - like wood screws serving as a "vice clamp" even when using wood glue - I get that. What I don't get is why the bolts are placed along the underlying surfaces in a way that I recognized as "the styling is done and now we need to add bolt holes". The second photo in the write-up conveys this. When you get those elongated 'torpedo tube' holes, with a deep part and a shallow part or when half of the bolt head is sticking out as seen on the front-most head tube bolt, the resulting look comes across as not well-resolved or thought through. Ideally you would want to first identify where the bolts would be needed, and form the surfaces to complement the mechanical requirements. That downtube shelf is pretty nice though.

Review: The Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
The industrial design - “styling” - seems at odds with the construction method. For example the line of bolts along the top tube are somewhat haphazardly placed along the outermost fillet, so that any bolt will have an uneven amount of material under it. Looks unconsidered too. The seat post junction is also odd, where it abruptly transitions from an Orbea Orca-like sculpted section to a round. For the talk of “easy modifications” in CNC I would expect tighter alignment between the construction and appearance details.
