Graeme Obree Still At It

We’re still keeping tabs on Graeme Obree’s attempt to break the human-powered land speed record and he’s still making progress getting all the pieces together, quite literally. The skeleton of a frame has come along nicely and the external fairing has been constructed to really cut through the wind. Obree scheduled a test run at a runway in Scotland, but nasty weather dampened his efforts to ride it all out. Humans Invent have been detailing this process and have a more thorough essay and set of photos from this attempt.
