    We'll help you with anything you need to know!

    Have you acquired two frames yet? Do you have access to a welder?

    Too true. Get back to us when you fulfill the two basic tall-bike requirements. Good luck on your journey, young grasshopper!

    You can use whatever you can get your hands on, but it's probably best to find two frames that have similar head tube angles. It's also best if you use a ladies frame for the top frame. Here's a write up I did when I made mine: http://kemmer.fotopic.net/

    Probably the best use possible for some of those clunkers. Even if I do have a certain fondness for my World Sports model .
