    This is like something out of a Dr. Seuss book. If you had a "Cat in the Hat" outfit, you could be in the Macy's Thanksgiving day Parade......This is the COOLEST-WILDEST bike I've ever seen. Just made my short list.............down to ONE! :wink:

    Nicely done. The designer is artful and the execution is tops. I kinda want a tall bike now.

    When do we get to see a ride through the tunnel :wink: :wink:

    That's it!
    You're Dr. Seuss!
    Can I hire you to show up at my daughters first birthday party??!! :)

    I love it! VERY clean application. And based on the thread. Very few setbacks. You have to be extremely happy with it.
    I'm inspired to "GO TALL" now.....

    Regards,
    Jules

    If you need a chain tensioner, maybe you could try and make your extra crank/jack shaft adjustable.
    Good looking vehicle, this thing makes a tallbike look like serious transport.
    My guess on the wheel size is 24".

    I go to work for a day and all these nice things said about me behind my back. Thanks all.

    It is cool. 8)
    Like butter.
    Dr.Seuss?.......birthday?.......I've have the icing!
    26" wheels, using a BMX freewheel for tension.
    Dang this bike is serious transport.
    Reinvention? They were first work bikes. Now it's a designer drug! :shock:
    I wish you all double high tall bikes for Christmas! :mrgreen:

    Graylock :wink:
