    I have an idea for a build, it will have 4 wheels built mainly from bicycle parts. How do you feel about this? Is it no longer a bike if it has 4 ?

    I would think 4 wheels should be cool. I building a 2 wheeler with a trailer; so that's 4 wheels.

    If it's bike parts and pedals, I'd say it's a bike. I want to see what you come up with.

    Thanks guys ! It is your builds that have given me the inspiration to build my bikes. The artistic & mechanical talent on RRB is impressive to say the least.

    i cannot speak for the rules but forma personal opinion if ti has pedals and can be ridden by pedal power then it counts as a bicycle i personally would love to see a quadcycle built i say go for it

    Thank you guys for the compliments. I've been looking at the build starts that have been posted, and it looks like there are going to be a lot of great ones!

    As long as it's not an 18-wheeler, that would be... well, pretty cool in my book!

    Good luck, Rg

    As long as it is primarily human powered and must be ridable... ;)
    At least that is my interpretation of the rules...

    If it isn't, it should be, and I'd like to see it either way!
