Looking forward to seeing your kickbike design as well. I ride a kickbike in NYC, New York City, and love it. I am also thinking about coming up with my own design as well.

This links shows the kickbike that I ride.http://kickbiker.com

Thanks, I put a hold on it over the winter, had a great working model, it snapped in two as I had mad a rather large cut in the aluminum frame that ended up worrying itself. Should have a new one in a week or so. cheers, R

Thanks for asking, DeviantGirl. I'm very late!! I'll have pics soon, I used some aluminum tubing and it all came together, but I had drilled some holes to close to some notches and split it. Worked unreal good for a whole day. I have enough tube to reinforce, so I'll build a new one this weekend and post pics next week. Cheers, Richard
