    Low Rider, Mountain Bike, idea's?

    i'm building a bike and originally i was planning to make it a solid frame with front shock. the more i look at what i have the more i want do. as it sits right now it is going to have front and rear shock. i was thinking about making it a low rider because the wheel base seem too short too me. i was wanting some opinions and maybe some cool ideas. i'm trying to keep everything as bolt on because i don't own a welder but i do know people who do.
    what it looks like now

    what it use to look like about 2 years ago

    Wow, so you chopped off the seat stays, then converted it from hard tail to rear suspension all with bolt on hardware? Very inventive!

    the brackets that hold the chain stay to the bottom bracket will need to be welded but i have not done that yet because because i still need to set the ride height. the only thing that is bothering me is the length of the front forks. they seem too long and makes the front sit too high. i don't want to start drilling any holes in th frame until i get it looking good. i am also trying to think of a cool name for it.
