Hello! I'm Karen, a student at ASU in Tempe, Arizona. I recently moved back from a year studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, and have consequently gotten hooked on all things bikes, especially the new medium of building a two-wheeler from the rubber up. But, since I'm insane and clearly a masochist, I'm not planning on just building ANY bike. I want to build this bike. Stupid idea? Probably.
I can hardly change a tire, haven't got a clue what I'm doing with a welder, and barely have enough experience on a bike to be able to not fall when I hit a pebble in the bike lane. I know this is a massive project. If I wasn't (clearly) insane, I would submit myself to simply putting together a standard retro Schwinn. But no! Must go big!
So, I suppose I'm hoping to make a few connections on here that could help me through the process with suggestions, critiques, assaults on my ego and the like. Any takers?
