Greetings! I would like to say that no innocent bikes were harmed in the creation of this monstrosity but it would be a lie. I came home from the dump full of energy and two old bikes on my rack. I was surprised I had something sort of ridable with only a couple hours time invested, mostly because it took a grand total of maybe 2 minutes to saw a Huffy in two. I have a total of zero dollars invested so I can live with the ugliness but functionality either needs improvement or I need to learn how to ride a bike. It is fun to coast downhill and I am actually able to pedal a little bit, but pedalling uphill cars beep at me and run me over and everything. Any tips (other than stay off the road) would be welcome. I have read that there is a trick to riding the cruzbike style bents but I have not really seen anything that explains those tricks in such a way an old dog can learn them.
