Apparantly it can climb over 6' objects? Huh?

    I once got a bike over a 4000' object, but it took me all day.

    Look closely, though, and you'll see it's 6" which is a rather different story...

    Haha oh I see. I thought it was a '.

    Bet it's hard to manual the fu*ker

    Don't think you'd get enough speed up to do that. Unless you walked it up to the top of a hill, then got on...

    How the fark does it steer properly when you've got independent steering for each front wheel?

    And 25.4kg - that'll get you fit :)

    Looks like some type of linking bar just behind the handlebarss

    Good spot, that kinda makes sense now. All they need to do is put a mahoosive big front chain ring on it and some pissy little skinny tyres and Pinno will buy one.

    Sounds good, but how do we then secretly remove the link bar after he buys it

    Squadron of pigs at the ready, he's a roadie mincer. We're more likely to see Bob Crow riding the Loch Ness Monster than see Pinno on one of those.

    Is there a brake on each front wheel?

    That's not a trike.

    This is a trike:

    I quite agree, it probably transforms into a combine harvester crossed with a rotavator. Very handy for planting potatoes. Ooooo ar.

    Looks like some dodgy photoshopping going on with that recumbent trike...
    Blurred chain at front and the pull side in front of the front wheel doesn't quite match that behind it
    Rear chain tensioner hanging down (behind (visually) the front wheel) in a very silly place for an offroader
    Right hand side front brake calliper mounted lower than the left hand one
    Second crankset half visable through front wheel
    Non Lefty front hub.....

    The Juggernaut is claimed to have 'shoulder width front wheel spacing', must have furkin narrow shoulder then!

    Really? I wouldn't tell Marie Leijerstam that - she spent Christmas riding it to the South Pole.

    Not sure what you mean, plenty of publicity photo's are photoshopped, some from pre series bikes or otherwise.
