    The Knee Crusher

    Ok, its been awhile since i posted and quite frankly I dont know what this is but it really hurts you knees!!!
    after tinkering for a week i got this mishmash working I think I am going to get a longer fork and a bigger chain wheel/shanks.

    but anyway what do you think, does it need something?

    That knurled piece is a peg that you used to bolt the two frames together? Clever.
    Does it have something that expands to grip the tube on the rear frame? Or is there a long threaded rod that goes all the way through both frames?

    That chain routing is pretty sharp. Nice work on this unique bike.

    Unique design for a 'crank forward' only thing I would do is raise the handlebars with a longer stem.

    Interesting, but is there some way you can re-work it so the shock-absorber is between the seat and the rear wheel?
    Might take some cutting and welding.

    thanks guys, the thing that attaches the two bikes is a peg that has a rear axle threaded through it, the crank of the blue bike is in the drop outs. I am really considering a longer fork and some ape hangers, some pics of me riding will come soon
