Josef: Folks here we are at velomobiel.nl in Dronten, the Netherlands, the epicenter of the velomobile world and I'm here with Allert, thank you very much Allert for taking the time this morning to speak to us, to speak to the "Laidback Bike Report", which of course is also viewed over here in Europe and today we would like to talk a little bit about a velomobile and in particular about the Snoek L version, which the larger version of this beautiful velomobile, the Snoek.

Josef: Okay, but unfortunately there are people like ourselves who may not be comfortable in a velomobile of this size.
Allert: Yeah, I don't fit in, I never drove it, that's a pity because I would like to.
Josef: Yeah, that's a real pity to not being able to ride your own creation.
Allert: Yeah right and it's not good also if you want to make some changes, let's say Steering geometry or the way it behaves at high speeds or things like that, so I only hear from people that ride it that something is not good or could be improved or should be different ...
