    I've got to finish my nephew's MTB first, a customer refurbish, plus I have two other builds planned before early June before I really start on the build-off bike. Now that I say, I better get my butt in gear. Maybe the Roadmaster I've been tinkering with lately will have to wait a while...

    Here are the rules from last year.
    viewtopic.php?f=55&t=39622

    More than likely they will be the same. Start date for the build is May 1 and deadline is August 1.

    If it happens to be an anything goes build I'm sticking with the original plan, though a much fatter rear tire may come into play, much fatter than the one you're already thinking about too.

    And I will be mining for my own iron ore to start the build.*

    If it happens to be an anything goes build I will be genetically altering a fast growing bamboo to grow in 3 months and build the entire bike in the last 6 hours before the deadline.*

    My son has a question about his build candidate... He recently acquired a bare frame of a Schwinn S350 electric scooter. He wants to use it as his build off entry. We've read the rules and it states the "bike" must be rideable. Would this mean he can't use the scooter? I'm reading it as he cannot and that it must be a bike, but I told him I'd ask anyway.

    Cool that he is thinking outside the box. I am guessing that it would be outside the rules too, but who knows.
    I know there are push bicycles, but almost all of the definitions of "bicycle" that I could find define that it is powered by pedals.

    This was briefly discussed last year and I think the term to pay attention to is "stock frame"

    Now, check this out, definition of bike:

    bike/bīk/
    Noun: A bicycle or motorcycle.
    Synonyms: noun. bicycle - cycle - machine - wheel

    Defintion of cycle:

    cy·cle/ˈsīkəl/
    Noun:A series of events that are regularly repeated in the same order.
    Synonyms: noun. circle - bicycle - period - bike - round - wheel

    A Scooter has 2 wheels (bi in bicycle) and the repeated kicking motion used to ride a scooter is a cycle.

    If he builds it to be foot powered, I would consider that a votable entry.

    That's the thing, you can enter the build off and break EVERY rule, and in the end I'm pretty sure Steve would still put your entry on the ballot, but will people vote for it based on your respect for the build off. If he builds a scooter, shows his process and gives us something to follow, I think we'd all consider that a votable entry.

    Kingfish, what's that plant growing under your spiral staircase? Maybe that's your inspiration for using folking bikes, motorcycle tires, and water skis in the same build...
