I got to admit it. That fat beach cruiser in the video is a nice bike.

I don't have a handy pic of the bike I'm riding right now. But here's a pic of a bike that I'm building. It's still in the early stages. But that's kinda good because the profile hasn't been cluttered up yet.

The front wheel is just a cheap-o that's acting as a dummy for fitting purposes. The real wheel will be 11 gauge spokes with front drum brake.

Notice the space between the frame and those 24 inch wheels. That's going to be useful. Notice, also, how much space there is between the crank's front-most position and the front tire. That's going to give me space to put in "Vespa" style leg/splash guards. I'll make them removable for summer riding. And as I think about it more, I'll come up with other ideas to use that extra space.

I think 24" wheels are going to be a good idea for these bikes.
