You'll want to check the tire seating on that rear. It's about to pop!

Heres my "Alt" bike, all it is a Old Kent beach crusier painted, front fender moved to the rear and obviously the handle bars turned. I'd like to get some new handle bars on it, but I got 2 months left in Korea and then it goes to the orphanage.





Peace!

If They Mated: A BMX bike and an old Schwinn exercise bike.

The back wheel was the front wheel of this exercise bike I found. It's solid steel I think, with a rubber strip around it. The wheel is probably as heavy as the frame. And it's a fixed gear, haha. The crankset also came off the exercise bike and that puts the gearing at 63/15. It's crazy to pedal that thing.

If your looking for fun this is for you. If you cant have fun on this thing you pretty much SUCK!!!!!! "

Awesome!

**East Hill's note: whoever you are, thank you! And if you could send me a pm explaining how to do that, because it would be a useful skill to have, one which I would love to learn.

I want to see someone try to horse hop with that. Better yet, have some friends lay down and attempt to clear them with just bunny hopping. Creative, I like it a lot

Dang, that would be bomber for Polo. If you get sick of the noise, and lack of grip on pavement you could try to mount sew-ups onto that back wheel. (do they make sew up s in that size?) Maybe you could fold a sewup like a figure eight and mount it double-side by side itself. or maybe you could glue some tubeless tires to it. Hmmm.

I just saw this one posted, but it was one of those posts where it was like 95 pages down a blog, so I just copied the picture and posted it here for you instead of using the link. There wasn't any text explaining it other than "that guys sure looks uncomfortable". Awkward, maybe, but not really uncomfortable.
