    story about homeless tourist with custom home-bike he later smashed?

    Hi guys, I remember reading a story about a guy who rode up and down the pacific coast on a homemade bike/trailer that had room for a bed. It had something like nine derailleurs and a flywheel to get it up the hills. He got fed up and smashed the bike. Does anybody remember that? I'm looking for the original story.

    I don't think that this is the guy that you're asking about but it might be. http://daviswiki.org/Human_Powered_Housing_Project

    Yeah, that's him. He smashed his trailer up in Portland a while ago...
