long live the frankenbike....


www.frankencycle.com

stumbled across this page while trolling myspace
the pictures are cool
the products look awesome
the price seems right

it is a super cool project
it is a super cool concept
a concept that I considered years ago
an idea that takes a greater attention to detail than I care to follow through with

recently Washington DC lost Chain Reaction a not for profit bicycle store/youth bicycle project
the thought of the frankenbike was where I thought that this bike could thrive

not everyone needs to be on a single speed or a fixie
but...
so many of the bikes that get donated to an organization like this are not worth the time the effort and the part replacement to make them so that they can switch gears
and honestly...
most people do not switch gears that much
