    Slow! I need tubes in the back and a 65t up front. I used it to haul gardening supplies the other day. I could not help but giggle

    I almost forgot about this build.
    Glad to see that you woke up from your slumber.
    This may be the first Build Off bike that's also a dump truck! Maybe that should be your name "Dump Truck" or "Dumpcycle"
