Have you ever tried to replace the wooden deck with a bucket seat? Or the foot pegs with pedals? It is so cool, but I think a seat or pedals would make it even neater! (If that's even possible)
<p>I would think that joining half a bike and half a skateboard in this manner would be easier and work better. The steering action of the skate truck may help in stability</p>
<p>You don't understand the concept behind the trike. It DRIFTS. Google people riding them. You'll see.</p><p>Cool build. Simple and effective.</p>
<p>ahhh no. This isn't like them at all, it is too small, and has no foot rests.</p>
<p>this is supposed to be a 'drift scooter' apparently. me personally, after riding drift trikes for a couple of years, i would still be terrified of drifting this thing. theres no grip on the base, no stability (i tried the same sort of technique on my trike with a wheelbase of like 750mm- flipped and shredded my knee on the road), and the pvc is also super slidey and not really attached firmly to the rest of the scooter. has potential, but needs a lot of work.</p>
<p>yea, I agree.</p>
<p>does it have to be a bmx bike?</p>
<p>good</p>
<p>pls show me a vid for this pls ;) i d k how it works.</p>
<p>Good idea thanks for share.</p>
<p>video of use try?</p>
<p> I see some serious safety issues. There are many edges on which a child could receive a serious cut that need to be considered. The bicycle frame itself was never designed to be used this way and could fail suddenly. The rear axle is far from securely attached to the bike as well. The concept is useful but the execution needs quite a bit of rethink.</p>
<p>Are you really worried about safety issues? If a parent dosent want there kid riding this then they can say no! Besides you could customize it to make it safer but for a first model, I think its pretty boss!</p>
For a work in progress the builder is doing fine but showing it before it is perfected could influence others to take short cuts. Obviously even for the builder to work around the device sharp edges needed to be attended to.
<p>I applaud you and hey you are never going to get anywhere if you just think, reminds me of when I was a kid making down hill racers with brakes that never really worked or the bike that had no brakes so to stop you stuck your foot into the fork and put pressure on the tire. Keep up the good work.</p>
<p>I love the simplicity of this, but I think you should use a board which covers the sharp edges. You could fit pegs into the holes to stop it shifting.</p>

<p>my biggest question is how is the ride? i ride drift trikes, and whenever i try drifting while standing up, there is no stability so i end up on my side, or thrown off the trike. also, what stops the pvc from sliding off the wood when you slide?</p>
<p>Was this your own idea?</p>
<p>You should post a video of it!</p>
<p>Sweet ride!</p>
Awesome!
