    silliest bike you have ever converted?

    -horribly ugly pink and grey and yellow '80's Peugeot MTB

    -Kabuki road bike that I put northroads, a loud horn (!), fenders, a rack, and multicolor spoke protectors

    and, my personal low:

    -an Autobike. One of the newer ones. I actually use it now and sort of like it. I just use it around campus though.

    You should. The tape holding the bartape in place came undone about 3secs before i pressed the shoot button. It adds to the 'look at my piece of s***' look.

    Oh yeah. 114cm wheelbase!!!

    Mongoose BMX. used a solid wheel from an exercise bicycle.
    no lockring,brakes, or toeclips, because that would be intelligent.

    Like vpower, it once had a 20 kilogram exercise bike flywheel for a wheel. Except mine had a freewheel so I used it on the back. It was silly and dangerous and impractical, but that is pretty much what that bike was designed to be. A waste of time and money!
