    That's really cute. A bike with tractor tires, that's something the local drivers might understand.

    Seat's too low, cadence is too low, looks like the pedals are farther apart than a normal bike- definitely some room for improvement there. It's not a rea Monster Bike until you can ride it over cars.

    this or that, this or that...show them how it's done instead. It's not like it's a serious project with any viable reason for having been built.

    Yeah, like all bikes in Alt Bikes are serious projects.

    Yeah, it needs some improvement, but it's a nice first draft.

    How can I say this gently?.......
    It's a fun project, but it looks more impressive sitting still than it does with someone pedaling it a slow walking pace down the street.

    (note to self--do NOT build any pedal-powered vehicles using 200-lb tires...)
