    Very cool. What do you have on the handle bars? Is that a shifter?

    Took my girl on her 1st bike ride in 15 years and she loved it she did better than the kids they ride all the time and all they did was complain I guess they don't get that riding bikes is a stress reliever and a way to see things you normally don't

    The only thing I wish is if a tire manufacturer would make a better tire for s7 wheels like how awesome would it be if you could fit thick bricks or fat franks or bontaragers on them

    I made this cool headlight from a marine spotlight it was originally mounted to a pedestal I wanted to convert it to led but when I took it apart I realized that the bulb is a sealed glass bulb so for now it's just a mock up but I think it looks sweet

    I made that out of a bracket that was on an old Schwinn exercise bike the light used to have a pedestal where it is bolted to its actually upside down the part that looks like its attached to the head tube isn't it's the handle for the spotlight
