... i'm quite sure the front wheel should be mounted the other way round, but for a little drive to the local starbucks this will do...

thanks for winning the derp comment of the year award! clearly if you knew anything about aerodynamics you would know that leading edge is larger than the trailing edge which creatings lift.... Thanks for trying tho.

Just think about it man, in what world does cutting the wind with the trailing end add a positive aerodynamic effect? have you ever been on a plane - imagine if their wings were on backwards... i think you are being confused by the pictures in that article sometimes shutter speeds of the cameras can make wheels appear to be spinning in the opposite direction. Furthermore no where in the article does it specify rotation direction.

I'm suprised I'm the first connect
Really nice bike, love the black on white frame
Just not a fan of that seat angle, you should fix it.
Hopefully this is for track use
