odd idea i cant find anything on
so i had a crazy idea for a bike. i has thinking of something like a cross between a lowrider and a mountain bike. just wondering what people thought about it.
dont ask, do.
im still planning a lowrider road bike
I like custom bikes for cruising around the neighborhood but I don't understand your concept. If you are talking about a bike for cruising that draws style from the off road scene that's cool. If you are talking about a lowrider that is supposed to be used off road I don't think it will be functional.
Whatever it is, like the previous poster suggested follow your inspiration.
yeah i had no illusions about it being functional off road, just something showy and different. when i get the money/time i want to get a friend of mine who makes motorcycle frames to build a custom frame from 1" square tubing and go where ever it takes me
RANS Allterra perhaps?
Or more "custom-looking" maybe?
The Allterra is about ten inches longer wheelbase than a normal MTB.
It works on milder trails but the long frame doesn't lend itself to technical use very well.
Here's a picture of my Jaguar, bought as frame & forks. Built it up with mountain bike components from a donor bike. It worked better than stock as a practical transpo-bike. And it did look cool. Off road, the gearing was too tall & the ground clearance was too short. But on trails it was fine. Still regret selling it.
