Prolly not gonna motor this but, here is my
tall bike for people who are afraid of heights

or is it a bmx bike with a bmx bike shaped seatpost?

Whatev, it is super fun and sortta weird to ride.

the frame is about the same height as a 26 inch frame (~22" actual, BB to post top), and has the (noticeably) short wheel base of the 16 inch kids bikes and small wheels to match

unlike a "normal" tall bike the rider pedals the botom frame- set up for me a six foot tall man to ride


AND i may have invented the "horizontal springer fork" since i did not line up the headsets like virtually all other tall builds.

this may be my favorite non-motored project of all time

later,
el

I think you've had one too many Uintas. That top frame without a seat-tube's gonna keep me up tonight...it's just ACHING to collapse. Please be careful!
