    Interesting, wasn't sure it was going to keep the interest, but watched to the end. Even put my phone down during it, but recognized I was watching this on my computer (so not that different that TV).

    Damn, this thread reminds me 4 years ago I wanted to build one. Had 2 old Raleigh frames and ended up just restoring one.. the other is still hanging in the garage.

    Since riding the Sprite I build I think I'd want something a little more stable on the bottom, I love your extension there.

    I really wanted one that would ride well, I mean it’s heavy, but it’s totally rideable. If I haven’t been on it in awhile I have to remember to pay attention to stopping, etc, because it essentially rides just like my daily utility bike, and you do adjust to the height to the extent that it’s possible to stop noticing you’re up there…as odd as that may seem.

    Figure there has to be an awful lot of planning for stops on that thing. Not likely you're track standing it at stop lights I'd imagine.

    I slow-roll and time some stuff, I hold onto signs or poles or whatever for others, I can step down if need-be.

    Ha didnít even think about grabbing songs/poles. Definitely girly requires some planning though. Would like to try one sometime

    It’s solid as a rock! I’m 275 lbs and it doesn’t flex or squirm or anything.

    Ditto, have hopped on a loaner, but never owned one. I like Ill-advised's approach to his build a lot.
