    My plane bike

    I just cut up an old MTB that I scored at the dump to put in the back of my Cessna.

    Coaster brake and front brake gives me no cables front to rear.Plane bike.jpgPlane bike in two.jpgPlane frame downtube.jpgPlane frame top tube.jpgPlane frame.jpg

    You need to use one of the free online image editors with a "rotate" feature that allows you to rotate the image in degrees clockwise or counter-clockwise. Just rotate your upside-down images 180░ and they'll be right-side up.

    BTW, that's a clever "breakapart" solution. The price was right, too.

    I bought a Brompton M6L folder to carry with me in my 172. Same problem, different solution ($$$$).

    When I read "plane bike" , I got excited. Then I opened the topic ...


    I think I had a different concept in mind.

    Very nice the only thing I flew (and hope to fly a bit more come summer) is a twin seat glider... no space in the back for bikes!
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I just added a bicycle drive to my plane.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    that one should go in the e-bike forum....

    an mtb buddy flies around with his 29er Cannondale Scalpel lefty. Takes both wheels off and somehow gets it into his Grumman Cheetah.

    All of my soul was hoping for this.
    2 wheels are better than 4!

    my veterinarian has a '68 beech bonanza and a '72 honda ct90. he had a guy saw the down tube in 2 and weld in a hinge so it could fold and go in the luggage door. so well done, it looked factory, paint and all.

    like, totally voided the bike's warranty!

    the bike's handlebar had a hand clamp (factory) so the bar could pivot sideways. and the mirrors unscrewed by hand.

    Rodney, that's cheating; it's gotta be a bicycle, not a motorcycle.
