Fred Kruggers new bike

My friend Fred from Belgium won the AMD world championship this year with this insane bike. He showed me all the details there, which are numerous. What is funny is that no one really understands the complexity of what it is actually for- transforming! It turns from gsxr geometry to vulcan geometry at the push of a button, or anywhere in between you want. It isn’t simplistic either, it uses multiple pivots and travel adjusters to achieve this. Unlike an airbag type system that just jack’s the bike way up or drops it down, this is actually the frame changing mechanically, in conjunction with the suspension, to mimic either a cruiser or sportbike in every way. Oh yeah, its also so well built it seems like a robot made it! His blog is in my links section.
