    Got my FreeRadical on the road today

    Hi guys,

    I almost finished the "build" of my FreeRadical on a Univega Rover 3.5.
    I still have some issues to solve, because the kit was incomplete, but I made a test on the road, and with the kids on the sidewalk, and we all got lots of fun!
    I still have to find tricks to make the trips safer for the kids (foot rests), but I got the "base".
    Woohoo!
    Pics will come later on.

    Please let me know everything you think about how it handles both with a load and without, and the process of mounting it. I'm contemplating getting one myself.

    Can't wait for the pics, too

    It handles well without a load, it's just longer to corner.
    My load is two 6yo boys, and they wriggle a lot, but it's fine.
    It's kind of tricky to start, the front wheel doesn't give as much control as before, but once started, you feel like a train. I don't have any problem with the balance.
    I got an incomplete kit, so I was missing the chain, the cables, and so on...
    I took some salvaged parts, but it's a "single-speed" bike for now, because I lack the cables.
    The build is really simple, just three bolts. One on the chain bridge, and two on the drop-outs.
