j_ryde For my #tbt pic: the "Ba-Donk-a-Donk". I made this bike 6 or 7 years ago. It's a 16" kids bike modified to fit 700c wheels. This photo was taken in Seattle a while back right after the bike got a fresh paint job.
_________
Fun facts:
-I've gotten 1st freakbike at the Dead Baby Downhill in Seattle TWICE on this bike. -it starts to get speed wobbles at around 48 mph. -those wheels are Mavic Ksyrium Elites (spray painted white)
-there is no toe overlap -yes I'll let you test ride it. :)
