    Connecting the rear dropouts of one bike to the bottom bracket of another

    Hello, I took two bikes and made them into one.

    I cut an old specialized mountain bike just behind the head tube on the toptube and downtube.

    I fit this into the rear end of () another mountain bike frame.

    To make this permanent I bent the stays in and fastened the stays to the splined bottom bracket with the bolts that usually hold on the crank.

    I'm looking for a better way, perhaps an adapter that I can install in the bottom bracket shell, to do this should my current system fail under load. Is there anything out there?

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you did, but no matter. There's the Xtra-cycle in its homemade varieties. And Sheldon Brown has some info on home-made tandems using two frames hooked together. Look them up if you haven't.
