Show and discuss your non-rat bikes here.
I would have to put it on a trailer to move it if I wasn't riding it, I rode it the store a while back and I parked it in the parking lot because that was the only place it would fit.

I really like the Penny Faroutthing. Makes me want one. Maybe I'd try that with a twenty inch 5 speed rear wheel I have and a 26" front wheel. Kinda sorta like Graylock"s Shadow but a little smaller, maybe call it the Shade I'm still liking that tall three wheeler. I'm also thinking I don't have enough tallbikes!
Practice makes progress.SOME OF MY OLD BUILDS
When I first built it I was riding it around a parking lot and took a corner too fast and the bike got up on 2 wheels and started to fall over so I had to ditch it mid air 12' above the asphalt.

I've been contemplating a talltrike but I've always felt that the third wheel could give you just enough of a secure feeling to let you forget that you're up so high. Trikes of any size require a whole nother riding style. I've flipped my Pixie sidehack more times that I can remember, so I can only imagine how a 10 foot fall might feel!
With that said ... eventually there will be a tall trike in my stable! A regular tallbike will be coming VERY soon!
This thread is one that deserves to be kept alive!
