Go big or go home?

Yep, here it is. Thanks to Marcus for taking the pictures.

Ride impressions: it is very silly. I only rode around the parking lot, so no idea how it would work on an actual trail. Marcus is optimistic that it will rock out. We’ll see.

Would I build another one? Yes. Would I build one for myself? Only if I was *really* bored. The fit was amazingly close to ok (with no toe overlap) despite the fact that I’m only 5’11”. But my attempts at J-hopping met with, erm, stupendous failure. Then again, with those wheels, I don’t think you’d even need to loft the front wheel to make this sucker roll over pretty much anything.
