I thought the photo used for voting last year wasn't a very good angle and didn't really do your work justice.

I don't know what to say about this, I think this build off is just a fun time to participate .I ended last year last with 3 votes and 1 vote was my own vote so i think i had 2 votes actually .My creation was probably not unique and the lines did not flow from the concept of the bicycle, I see that this year there are 2 categories one of a standard bike from a crate and one where you can think with your own imagination . Now i understand why last year standard bicycle where higher graduated this build off had has always 2 categories one of a standard crate bike and one of a fantasy bike, so this refutes my thoughts that the voting was segmented by us know us

Love those forks...
that front fork came from another bicycle that I had, the problem with this front fork was that the ball head had a different diameter, I solved this by welding the cupings of the original bicycle in the Garuda Bharat bicycle ball head. I had ask many bicycle makers how can i make this adjustable they said this is not possible but through my customize background I knew that everything is possible but you have to come up with the solution yourself, so again i concluded think outside of the box

How about an adapter? Use a hole saw kit to cut rings out of flat metals. Drill holes to mount the rings to the hub flanges and create new spoke holes to match the rim count. Use small machine screws and nuts. Makes choosing rims and hubs that weren't meant to work together possible. Ring diameter can be determined by spoke availability.

Or... No spokes.

looks wicked!


I love this idea, what a thought exchange I had already begun to drill holes in the rim to perform a new laying pattern of the spokes, but this metal blades idea of your lifts my design to another level definitely think about how I can get something like this integrated in my design
