    Post your ride

    Hey guys, I'm starting this thread as a place for us to post some pictures of bikes we have built, or works in progress. Unfortunatly, I havent built any frames yet, so I have nothing to post .

    Here's the frame I made w/Joe Bringheli. It was painted by John Hodgkins in Alabama. I'm partway through collecting all the parts so I can FINALLY ride it (built in 1999!!!).

    I previously posted my latest stuff .Nothing new going on in my basement other than finishing up my wife's new townie/ commuter bike. I wasn't planning on building any more bikes for awhile so I could do some boat work. But my wife has been talking about this Ryan Duplex someone loaned us last spring I am not a fan of recumbents but my wife loved it and has been hinting she might like having one.
    So I have been doing some doodling. The only thing I didn't like about the Ryan was the 20" front wheel , so I took this photo I found of a Ryan (top photo)and made the front wheel 26"( bottom photo) This is what I came up with.



    I would also want to simply construction and come up with something a little unusual so I am thinking of bending the top tube and the bottom tube to meet the headtube. I am also thinking of wrapping the seat tube( for lack of a better word) around the rear wheel and blending it into a rear rack.
