Re: first bike fail, new escape plan
Your Airman has a lot of potential. You can't beat starting off with a solid, well designed frame and then add to it as you go. The frame and wheels are the foundation of your bike. Once you have this on the road, you won't believe how different and better it is than your old bike. It will be well worth the effort and time you put in to it. Good luck with your build and keep the pictures coming...
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
