    The trailer one seems like it would be best in pretty much any situation. If I can get my hands on one of those mowers I'm going to give it a shot.

    I'd definitely want a fixie for a lawnmower bike. Otherwise how would you back up?

    I think this is where a bent would really shine. How else could you mow and have a cold one at the same time?
    more cops have been killed by donuts than guns in chicago it is a medical fact ask any doctor.

    One of the mowers in the first link has the mower blades mounted forward and very little rake to the forks. It's operator is wearing flipflops.

    Surest cure for toe overlap I've ever seen.

    Remember the antacid ads that people claimed that they liked a certain food, but those foods don't like me? I like hugging trees, but tree huggers don't like me. I would say that I am someone who cares about my environment, I love the outdoors, it's a great place to ride my dirt bike(motorcycle), but some of those tree hugger types are so crazy that they think killing or seriously injuring people like me is an acceptable activity. I love my enviroment, and try to protect it so I can ride, but those environazis are whacked.

    Pedal powered lawnmowers are cool, but their practicality is dubious.
