I'm working on making my family's bikes and trikes easier, faster, safer and more fun and learning new skills as I go. Bike riding is a healthy way to reduce pollution, conserve oil and have fun.

The Tank Trike grows!
On the most recent test ride, the pedal strike was intolerable. The bottom bracket is so low the pedals hit the ground. My overly complex solution was to cut of the back of the kids bike and attach an old Mixte frame rear that can take a 26" wheel. I also flipped the stem to face toward the driver instead of away, put on a wide set of handlebars off of an old cruiser. I used the seat tube from the new rear to move the front of the banana seat back. My goal is to have it all together for the 4th of July! I'll post sooner this time Trust Me :)
