Default Re: Unspoken rules?

I Si_vis,

I personally enjoy the out of the box thinkers. Also thought with out peddles it is no longer a bicycle until I saw one that was amazing! In the state where I live (CT) A "bicycle with motor assistance" needs not have peddles to be legal.

So, no, I do not think there is an unspoken rule other then play nice, don't curse unless it is funny and the whole running with scissors thing.

"Build it, and they will look at the pics"

If one is kind to their fellows, they have every right to speak. Same as the next poster. IMHO.

Post Script, great to meet ya!
worst apocalypse ever

Absofrigginlootley awesome advice!
Empiricle testing is always best.
Bicycles (even Motorized bicycles) have pedals.

As for rope burn....there is none of that type of behaviour here. Learing the ropes should be informative and fun, not an exercise in anxiety.

.........nice thought everyone........
The only rope burn that came to mind, was of one falling off the wire and getting their knees snatched out from under them as they went by......being the other parts got the quick and untimely stagering twang....OUCH.....that would really hurt!

I know here in my state, UT, if it has a motor, and we have rules on 98cc or less equiped rides, it still requires the proper credentials to even ride it on the street. Peddles or not. They past this rule back when the pocket bikes were the rage some 4 years ago. ANY type of motorization on two wheels requires all the same requirements as a full sized motorcycle.
So all you riders need to really study up in your states about what is actually allowed, and riders be aware of the possibility to getting a citation.
I once recieved a citation on my bicycle some 30 years ago, it was for passing cars on the wrong side of the road, and for speeding as well. It cost me $150.00, 15 hours of community services, and my auto insurence went up.
Now that really sucked back then.

Pull the peddles, that crank space is a good location for a jack shaft anyways.
