    I keep thinking how if the skeleton bike was a blow up doll and moved a bit forward how you would get pulled over each time you rode the bike...

    If loving Portland is wrong, I don't wanna be right.
    Such an awesome town.

    Oddly, I moved from there (Rancho Bernardo, but I worked in Carlsbad) to here (Vancouver, but I work in Portland) and I agree. Bike riding here is year 'round, and it's great. The cycling community is occasionally full of itself, but it's kind of fun to come to a 4-way stop and have car drivers wave you through the intersection.

    This guy: http://montanatransitauthority.com/ has built some wild creations.
