Nick's arm bike - AtomicZombie builders gallery

 I modified a home built FWD low-racer that I'd purchased a few years ago from a builder in Portland, OR for arm power and loaded touring.

The modification took about an hour and consisted of welding a bottom bracket shell to a seat post tube (with seat clamp fitting still attached) and fixing it to the top of the steer tube. Also mounted a rack and bucket panniers. The next day I rode the bike on a 5-day 300 mile bike-camping trip and everything held up well. More>>
