This is my attempt to make something a little more refined. I made this industrial lamp out of upcycled pieces. You can open the clam shell to get as much light as is desired. Materials include: old work drop light, unknown piece of machinery, a few old European coins drilled out as washers, a bit of antique brass lamp chain, and hardware from a Schwinn exercise bike. Dimensions 17"x10"x4"

I would love to have a 32" wheeled bike. One extra set of wheels with studs so I could do winter rides in the state of Misery. AS short as I am it would have to be an extended frame to get the standover low enough to ride without a ladder along. It would look so exotic as such. But I'm thinking with the weight it would need to be designed as an electric with bottom bracket drive, 72 volt driven CYC probably. It would add another $1200 to the bike for electric assist. I wouldn't need my current stack of bikes. Maybe a grocery trailer that is proportional to the rest of the bike. And as long as I'm dreaming about un-OB-tanium it could be made of TI-tanium! Just wondered if anyone would bite and say, "I'll build that for you Your Shortness!" I am such a dufus! Be Well, SS.

I have built a 36" bike that stays low for anyone to ride, such as you describe.

Alchemist I have been amazed and envious of your talents. Would you be insulted if I bought one of your creations and electrifed it, installing a belt drive with the electric assist? I would hope you wouldn't mind. We would have to collaborate on a trailer in a style to complement the bike. And maybe a moderate front or rear rack that could haul small amounts of groceries like a gallon of milk or other. It would have to suit you as well as me. I appreciate your ability to create a design in your mind then produce it. Be Well, SS.

D_S the CYC drive unit can be incorporated to go behind and above the actual bottom bracket so it gives the early motorcycle vibes. But I would want only an assist not a throttle. Maybe I am silly. What are your thoughts about this? Shouldn't I start another thread here? This is probably considered OT? Sort of. I will PM you or if it is OK, we could do designing right on the forum. I know I would enjoy being able to see someone design their new bike with the builder. Kind of being in on the whole thing, maybe living vicariously. I would greatly enjoy that as well. Be Well, SS.
