Two, perhaps three Le Cirques ago, a lady named Diane showed up at cirque with two bikes, a highwheeler and a purple steel lugged frame. Here is a photo of Brian Baylis taking the boneshaker out for a spin around Battleground's parking lot.

Diane built both bikes and as far as I can remember, she never did attend another Cirque.
