Reverse Steering Bikes
 
Hello everyone

We are setting up a bike project in London.

We are looking to buy about three reverse steering bikes.

Does anyone know where we could get them from?

Thanks

Bea

I think there's a group near Santa Cruz, California, that makes freak bikes and has at least one reverse steering bike.

Sorry, that's all I know. I don't remember the name of the group.

OK, that's kinda cool. And the price is right. If he were in Austin, I'd buy it. And then try to learn to ride it and probably never succeed. Then eventually give it to somebody more coordinated than me.

Actually, I'd try to get it for free -- point it down the middle of the road, turn the wheel straight, and try to ride it no-handed. And if I succeeded, I'd pay him anyways -- $60 is cheap.

Saw one at a carnival several years ago...I don't think anyone actually makes these, except us guys who like to do crazy things. :) :)

News to me! Got my reverse steer trike (Thebis) from Canada many years ago (sold it about 10 years ago). Couple of banana trikes and a couple off woodies on Craigslist from Santa Cruz recently.

I will look around for freak bikes more. I hope you are right!
