So I've published this on instructables
wood Conversion Instructions

It's technically not done, needs some furnishing like a seat bottom and better handlebars... But it's ridable and very much fun

I went with the original wheel because the steering geometry wasn't very nice with the smaller wheel (too much effort as I needed to correct more often). I would have to bend the forks to restore the original trail I enjoyed before

My father just recently got a Miller 135 MIG welder - yesterday, for free in fact And it's in working order... I know mig welding isn't ideal for bike frames, but perhaps this winter break I'll see about welding an awesome frame

Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.

Bike Miles (Begin Aug. 20 - '07): ~433.2 miles
