    Really interesting stuff in here. If you get bored, skip ahead to the part where he builds one for his young son. And then tries to ride a regular bike again.

    That must be insane to try and learn on a bike.

    Funny thing is, that’s how you steer a motorcycle at speed. A motorcycle you steer like bicycle at slow (parkinglot/intersection) speeds, but bends and higher speeds, you steer opposite – turn bars right to go left and vice versa. It’s wonky to think about, but it’s intuitive for some odd reason… however trying to ride this backwards bike must be nutts!

    We should have Backwards Steering competitions after Tuesday night rides instead of Slow Races. Three Boneshaker minimum.

    Rode one of these bikes at BestFest @ Buckwallow a few years back, everyone tried and no one could do it.

    I rode the one at BestFest, sort of…
    when I realized how hard it was, I just steered it by the fork crown.

    Bah…I thought this was a shout out to the dude in Toronto that rides his bike backwards throughout the city (sits on handlebars facing backwards).

    I’d pay good money to see the look of disappointment/disbelief on the welder and engineers faces seeing you do that.
