    I did something like this last year.

    I built up a 26″ Cotic BFe and fitted some very short and rigid forks to quicken the steering. I dropped the saddle and fitted a rear freewheel with lot’s of engagement and a single speed.

    It should be shut down because it has been established purely to indoctrinate children with religion whilst pretending to educate them. Any religious biased school should be shut down for the same reason.
