    Which planet do you guys live on? LOL! Has your neighbourhood not been terrorised by little oiks racing these things around?
    I've got one stashed in my garage that I had to confiscate (by buying it! Grrrr!) My son was getting into a lot of trouble with the police on his, so, I told him to sell it, he sold it to his mate, great! Next thing I got another phonecall, he'd 'borrowed' it back & was in trouble again! Double Grrr! So I put a 'compulsory purchase order' on it. Then told them that I'd sold it to 'a guy in the pub', in reality it's hidden in my garage! Shhhhh! LOL!

    I tried one of those out on a racetrack back in 92’ great fun I doubt I could get my feet into that position now as you had to really twist your ankles to get on the foot pegs.

    Rode my nephews little “Pit-bike” last month and that was cramped enough

    They have mini bikes like that without the motor but it makes for a rather cramped bike:




    Just big enough to squat on and pedal!

    More like a circus bike than practical transportation!

    Pocket bikes must be easy to hide given the tiny size. Have you taken it out to ride? Might be fun.

    Over a month ago, I started a thread on the Kent Mini 8 folder. Here is the link to it's webpage on RideThisBike's site:

    http://ridethisbike.com/products/Ken...lding-bike.htm

    It looks like it evolved from one of those Razor Runts to a more practical and useable bike. Notice the "crank forward" geometry.

    I was out for a ride with my daughter last weekend and one of those went by.

    She said: "What the ding-dong was that?" (She's ten. That's how kids talk, I guess).

    I said: "It's called a moron!"

    She said: "No, I mean the thing the moron was riding!"

    I could not answer her question.

    Wow, that has taken everything I look for in a safe bike/vehicle and reversed it.
