It's not a guilt trip she lays on me, it's a common sense trip. I'd be ruined without her, and the fact that she approves of this workshop-for-Yuba trade tells me that it really was a good idea!

My wife, bless her heart, has had to put up with my bike-obsession for many many years, and I expect she is keeping a running tally of all the money I've spent on various projects, which she'll bring...

I have a Worksman SUD front-loader trike, upgraded with a 3-speed coaster brake rear wheel, and I rode it all through Hartford, Conn.'s rather snowy winter this year. You can't get more stability...

I can vouch for the Worksman front loaders - I have an S.U.D., and I swapped out the metal box for a grocery cart (without the bottom part and the wheels). It is not winning any races, but with a...

Honing my maneuvering skills on a Worksman frontloader trike

I have a somewhat modified Worksman front-loader trike, which I love, but which is, obviously, not great for maneuverability: It tends to tip on sharp turns. Given that I can rarely get it moving...

It would be cool if you left the frame then bent a seatpost in such a way as to accommodate for the bent seat tube. I mean, if we're talking about quixotic bike-fixing missions and all . . .
