New High racer Clones

Bruno has just posted his new bike that he built with my advises.

The bike weighs under 10Kg which is very good for a first bike.
Well done !

That is the second 'clone' of my red Highracer, the first one being built by Eric of Pontivy.
If my advise help you to build your bike, please send me a picture so we can share the result.

Full of interest I am reading through your website. I would like to make a carbon fibre recumbent myself, but do wonder were I can find some more information regarding where I can buy the materials, the process and equipment of vaccuum bagging, etc. Are there some books/websites on the topic (i.e vacuum construction for beginners)?

Well, it really depends in which country you are living in. You can buy all the materials on the internet from on-line suppliers. Youtube is a good source to see how carbon parts are made. Vacuum bagging is difficult because you can warp the part or create wrinkles in the skin. Start by building a seat over a piece of foam. If there is a club of Kayak near you, ask them if you can watch when they repair a shell. Good luck
