    Oddest SS?

    What's the oddest SS you have seen? I bring itup because I just looked at this one. Never seen anything like it.

    it needs some modification

    I would change the fork to accommodate a 26 inch wheel to slacken the head angle a bit and give some pedal clearance for those long cranks. now that would be a frankenbike.

    Schwinn ENF BMX Frame

    Crank clearance is somewhat compromised because of the slick tires. It is pretty normal in BMX to have 180 MM cranks and not have a problem with clearance.

    Gives me some ideas . . . . . . . . . . well, maybe not!
    Thanks to www.weavercycleworks.com for my awesome bike frames!

    i was kidding about the 26" wheel, the handling would be kinda slow. this bike actually looks fun to ride. i wish i would have kept my old bmx from 1980. that GJS brought me much joy.

    I've seen messengers in Manhattan riding around on creations like that.

    Reggie Jackson (a former Fat City employee,not the ballplayer) used to ride something very similar if I'm not mistaken.

    We gots a zillion o' them miserable midget bikes 'round here. I live in Eugene, Oregon, home of Bike Friday. This place must be clown bike capitol of the freakin' western world. When I saw that picture I thought, "What's the big deal? I hit a couple o' those on my way to work today."

    Anyway, 'round here them things is ubiquitous. Little wheels... I don't get it.

    You know, that was my first reaction (that is wasa bike Friday) but then I realize it was a BMX frame. Seems like it'd be hard to get the bars high enough to be useful.
