    I just couldn't bring myself to post this in the Frame Building forum. everything is so sacred in there, I fear they'd completely miss the humor.

    Fortunately I had all the parts on hand, and access to a welding machine.

    This is the result.

    One day I will build a bike completely from scratch. When asked how I did it I'll post up that link and say it was the only set of instructions I needed.

    I wish there was a way for people to comment on the craptastic articles on ehow. I just want to beat the owner of that site with a board with a rusted nail. Then make him/her read those articles until his eyes bulge through his skull. Then pour salt into the bulging eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I did post it there, some of them could use a lightening up moment.

    Good find by the way, I would rep you but obviously you are a rep whore.
