Hoi 25Hz,

oh I forgot 'bout the holes in the mudguard.

I also noticed that heavy loaded bags on the rear part (vacation), had
no adverse effect on the max speed of my python. I have "banana bags"
which do not move the CG backward as much as common bike bags - see
attached picture.

But above 60kmh I don't feel well - but the same was true for my 20inch
flevo racer - so it is probably me.
