Show and discuss your non-rat bikes here.
I think you answered part of your question but don't be hard on yourself. Study up a little more, Try some swingbikes, and then ask yourself again. You'll get it this time.

I was going to update my sig line, but I'm not seein' anything worth plagiarizing right now.
There kinda like a "Jeep thing".

Here is my No-Weld Swing bike. It was the second bike I built, back before I bought a welder. You can lock the seat post clamp and ride it solid or loosen it up and swing away.
Here I am riding it at this year's Midwest Bicycle Fest.

This was the 13th swingbike I built, it was put together with NO welding. Since then I've built three others, all with the same geometry.
The latest one can be seen here http://vimeo.com/19878083 & here http://vimeo.com/user5542101/swing-bike-curbies-on-a-carvingbike
I noticed some of the swing bikes have the rear pivot angled forward while some have the rear pivot angled back (similar to the head tube angle). Does anyone know if one type is more stable than the other?
I tried being serious, but it was boring.
