Fraudster ripping off DIY tutorials

Nothing pisses me off more than somebody trying to pass off others' work as his/her own. 

A scammer on Instructables posted on of our DIY tutorials, claiming it as his/her own. 

Send a message to this fraudster and report him/her.

"Once in awhile I get the urge to create a new wild and crazy cycle based on some idea from the many sketches I've collected over the years..."


Look familiar? That's because it's ripped off directly from our AtomicZombie DIY tutorials!

This fraudster even took the time to remove our watermarks on every picture.

Send a message to this fraudster and report him/her.

Report this fraudster to Instructables:

Thanks to our worldwide bike building community for being vigilant and revealing these fraudsters.

Velo project update & newsletter

Progress has been a bit slow due to extreme cold weather and a very untidy basement that's limited our velo project workspace. But, rest assured fellow bike builders - an update on the velo project will be unveiled very soon, maybe even today.

And, a new issue of the AZ bike builders newsletter will be online in the next couple of days. We have an exciting announcement coming soon, so stay tuned!
