Bonus points if you're of the generation that knows what Trapperkeepers are!

Yes, for riding would want tape... even just the down low tapped. But aesthetically this photo looks brilliant!


Better than all the trapperkeepers and puffy stickers money can buy!

I don't think they are any shorter than most "track" bikes. I think they LOOK short for a couple reasons. The frame is BIG which always makes stays look short and it looks like the frame has a lot of BB drop compared to most "track" frames. I think the less level/greater angle makes them look short.

I could be way wrong, but it looks like the sidecar would stress the hell out of the frame when turning left.

I bet my pup would be stoked to ride in it.

I dig it, seems like a trailer is an easier/better solution tho.

Baby tire needs a gumwall.

Maybe, I dunno either. But you could carve right turns at 100mph.

I didn't notice that tire until you mentioned it. Now I can't 'not' notice how wrong it looks without a gum wall. Good eye.

The platform with a little carpeting would be the ultimate dog cockpit. Any dog would love the hell out of that.

I agree with you that the overall width would make the bike a hassle for lots of areas. Most, probably.

I discovered the sidecar bike by accident. After I posted the pics I visited the manufacturers site.

$4,500.00 seems a bit steep for a coaster brake tricycle.

I just imagine trying to get on a greenway around here and getting murdered by the first pole.

Also, have to love well shot and edited video. All the cuts work perfectly with the music. Ask me how long that takes.

Also, you'd be "Taking the Lane" whether you wanted to or not, most of the time.
