A Street performer's bike that bends in the middle. Seemingly impossible to ride, a skilled rider can out-turn a normal bike and weave through crowded streets.

This is THE original Wobblebike. We coined the name in 2000.

I appeared on stage with this bike at the opening event of last years Tour de France - which was televised worldwide.

Step 1: Getting Started

The best frame to begin with is a ladies MTB frame. A smaller frame than you would normally ride is best. if you are under 5'6", a 24" wheeled bike is best. The construction photos show how we did a 20" wheeled one. You will need another scrap bike for parts.

Once you have stripped the frame of parts, Cut the down tube nea to the bottom bracket, and the 'top tube' nea to the headset.
<blockquote>You may want to change the angles around and make improvements. we've made 10 of these and the headtube angles change the steering.</blockquote><p>What difference did you notice in performance for different headtube angles?</p>

Very nice!<br/><br/>Here's another implementation, from the Annals of Instructables - this was one of the very first instructables to be posted, back in '05:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.instructables.com/id/wobble-bike/">wobble bike</a><br/>
Hmmmmm, as we have been featuring our Wobblebikes on our website since 2001, and we were the first to come up with that name for this type of bike, I had wondered where he got his idea from. This is a better quality build and a better design (you don't have to cut the frame up to service the bearings). All credit to the other person though for being an Instructables pioneer.
Hmmmmmm, this is called a Swing Bike and has been around since the 70's...
I just call mine the swivel bike since it doesn't wobble unless I want it to.
2001?!!?! bah! this is basically the same idea as the Swing Bike, which has been around since the 70's. i made myself one like this, in the late 90's.
very cool!! wat are the chances of getting the speed wobbles hahahahah. i imagine it wld be bad. neways nice ible.
You can get speed wobbles pretty easily on this. Got to learn to steer with your butt. It helps.
That music is awesome!
Cool instructable :) Damn annoying video music, though.
lol that is so odd =).<br/><br/>yet...possibly awesome? .nice<br/>
