The second one I've built, it won first at the Boise Bike Week Fraken Bike Contest. Most votes and got the most at the Auction the benefited the Boise Bike Project. The Swing Bikes need Ape hanger bars to pull back easier. And I do have the real swing bake but its too hard to ride compared to our custom bikes

I started with the Tallbikes and it was only natural to get into the Swingbikes. I've made five so far. These are my favorites.

My ride the Vista


Daughter Beki's ride.She is the Queen of Swingbikes.


Daughter Amy's pride and joy and yes that is a Wobbley John clone.


Both girls carry their bikes in the back of their Jeep Cherokee's to ride anywhere, anytime.
I do have vids of Beki's http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHJ4oyCDzZk

And one of me riding Amy's in my favorite vid of mine.....well Amy's, she filmed it.

12" mini swing


My "downtown" swing bike because I don't have to worry about locking it up and it's ghetto enough that no one will steal it.

Theres some cool customs in here!

Just wondering, how different is the ride compared to a real swing bike with a spring?

The two custom ones that I have built are easy, the new Swing Bikes out there, Americas Bike Company Swing King like posted by
Strings_and_Steam has are a hard one to ride. It need Ape's and a Banana seat to help it out

As for the original Swinger, unless I'm to big for it, its hard...

Here's my home built! used to ride an original when I was a kid and I wanted one that was scaled up for a 6'+ person. building another that is a little smaller for your average person.

I think you answered part of your question but don't be hard on yourself. Study up a little more, Try some swingbikes, and then ask yourself again. You'll get it this time.
