Oli ... I apologize most humbly if my last post here was misunderstood.
You do awesome work and I love reading your blog. The fact that the bike is ugly IMHO has nothing to do with what you did.
There is absolutely nothing you can do to make the bike more attractive in my eyes. Re read the "bikes of beauty" thread to get a gist of my misguided thoughts on what looks good and what doesn't :) . Having said that, the design has a definate single purpose theme to go as fast as possible which I can truely appreciate (that doesn't stop it being ugly though in my opinion).
I am sorry if I was unclear, and yes I am probably wrong :) ... I quite often am.
Here are some other things that are in my opinion seriously ugly.

Wrong - well the plane & helicopter are average, but the Britten & Veyron are Oarsum.

Nah. I admire their craftsmanship and purposefulness but blech.

Which I guess was Arjan's point, but he's wrong too. :p

Hey Oli, were you looking for an extra member for the relay for Taupo. A friend of mine asked if I knew of anyone looking for an extra. I seem to remember you saying something on those lines?

Cheers
