my first long bike
i rescued two almost identical 20" girls bike frames to use in the construction of my first long bike. the seat tube of the front frame is the same outside diameter as the steer tube on the fork i removed from the rear frame, so im gonna attach the frames there, and fabricate brackets to attach the front frame to the rear frame vie the rear drop outs on the front frame and the bottom bracket of the rear frame.
questions,is this a good way to do it or should i re-install the fork to the rear frame and bolt the rear frame's forks to the rear drop outs of the front frame? this would make the bike reeeeaallly long, and it would have a pitot point at this connections, is that ok? when running the chain should i install something to help keep chain tension along that length, or maybe leave the cranks on both the front and back frame to use as a guide for the chain?
any help would be appreciated, ive never built one these before , and wouldnt be attempting it now if werent for y'all posting pics of weird bikes on this site!!!!
