The Norge/Mr. Sven bike chute image is impressive but looks like it may be photoshopped.

I can't find any evidence that anyone rides down the one in the photo above, however





also


You can take a run down the mountain year-round for about $20.
In summer, they use a sled with wheels, which isn't as fast as those which run on ice
but still gets up to a speed
of about 65 mph. and can pull 2.5 G in the corners
(on ice, they pull 4.5 G!).
I took a ride and was blown away; the turning velocity of the wheel-bob

makes motorcycle roadracing seem
tame, especially when it goes nearly upside-down through the banked turns.

I'm gonna cry. That picture of your bike makes me think of my Bianchi -- stolen two months ago after six years of daily use.

Oh Ghost, I am so sorry. This is a very special bike to me and I worry about it being stolen all the time. It was hand made at the Bianchi factory in Italy to fit me. It has a "handmade medallion" and signature on it which I worry is like a spotlight to "notice me". However I did eventually swap out the stem when I didn't want to ride in such an aggressive posture. I also cannot swap out the front cluster for 3 chainring which I'd really like to have a better climbing ratio. Ravages of age!

Scrubbing the decks while paying homage to Pagan Mountaineering in Moab. Getting ready for summer cruising plans. Likely to head south this summer to warm latitudes to get some diving in.
