It's a bit heavy, but it does everything I want, and cars fear it.


  1. Val's Dreadnought RULES! It's a meat-powered battleship for the ages.

  2. The dreadnought was one of the inspirations when I built my bike SuperVato. Val kicks ass: he's one of the unsung heroes of the utility bicycling movement in the U.S.

  3. Amen, Nollij -- Val was (and continues to be) an inspiration in utility bicycling, and he's a regular fount of knowledge.

  4. What GhostRider says -- inspirational!
