a JB Welded freewheel gerry-rigged into a fixed cog radially laced all wrong on both sides with a complete absence of tension on spokes that are too long creating a dangerously sketchy attempt at a wheel that probably popped a few spokes on the first half pedal stroke of its maiden voyage


propped up near a cement wall in midday sunshine the shadows make it look a little more like a two-cross just a little less sketchy

Even halfass crossthreaded jerryrigged bikes are faster than walking unless you end up in a pile of catastrophic failure

That's why bikes are cool. There's room for personal interpretation and the spirit of making it work because it fucking has to because you gotta get there when you gotta get there and experimentation is ok in a test pilot kinda way
