Thanks for the link! I enjoyed the whole almost-three-minute video, but especially the Penny Fakething. As far as I know, you're the only one to make a multispeed velocino with a big front wheel, and it looks surprisingly rideable.
Hats off to the National Geographic dude. He was having a blast testriding your vehicular experiments, all of which are creatively from way out where the busses don't run.
Looking at the video, a large power company grid seems to abut your workshop. Coincidence? Or are you tapping the EMF and RFI (Electro-Magical Force and Ratbike Fabricating Influence)?
Likewise thanks for the link.. I built a reverse fake penny with a little wheel in front of a unicycle and steering that reaches up to where I need to steer..I was going to put a pic but am not electronically brainworthy yet.
Seriously, that ****'s a trip. I didnt get the chopper thing at all, except it looks brutish.
Pretty cool stuff, though - I wish I had that guys job.

There's a vid of a spring-powered bike on that page now. Looks like the kinda spring used in overhead garage doors. You know, the kind that occasionally get loose and punch a hole in the garage wall...
