    Bicycle trailer help?

    Well I’m looking to refine my kayak trailer, my current setup is a ghetto prototype that is a little on the bulky side, and has some rolling resistance. I want to use bicycle wheels on a new setup, and it’s going to be a simple design. I’m thinking of using two bicycle rear wheels on an axle...

    Yard mustang

    Not a bike, but it’s a build. Every city block in the United States (and probably Canada too) there is a mustang parked in a yard that isn’t in use or hasn’t been started in years.

    Electra cruiser 1

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to show off my Electra cruiser chopper. 700x28c in front, 24 inch rear dropped and extended on “lift shackles. 52t chainring, 13t rear sprocket. Miserable to accelerate, but has top end for days. As a kid I had a west coast choppers bike, and I tried to recreate the feel...
