    Hope the curbs are marked cause I didn't notice (didn't spend too much time looking either) any type of trip edge....over the handle bars we go!!!!!! better than the steering wheel/windshield dinner though!!

    I suppose we could paint our plows green... then we could honestly offer a green plowing option to our enviromentally over-conscious clients?

    That has to be a school project or something. I think my plow is green when it's covered in white. People and their "green" attitudes drive me nut's. Buy a hybrid, thats real green untill you have to throw out the battery's every 4-5 years

    If anyone bothered to read a bit on this guy or look at dates they would realize how myopic it is to insult and criticize this guy.

    It is a small BIKE path. A homemade path that he and his friends ride and maybe some others seeking exercise. He volunteers his time and efforts trying to keep somewhat of a smooth path for all. I suppose he should hire one of us to do it with a wideout with wings added.
    Wishing or hoping for personal injury to someone like that could come back to bite ya. Karma is a female dog.

    more power to him, i made a point of rereading the entire thing, and still think WTF, but what people do with their time is their buisness, i well say that the thought he put into the design and mathmatics of it is very interesting, good for him.

    I think WTF about a lot of things people do. But I don't wish harm on them. Not saying you did.
    This topic was on here I believe 2 years ago and there is another thread about it. I believe that one was more positive though.

    I don't believe I would do it either but more power to him and he is doing a service for others as well so who am I to knock him. It is akin to doing a old lady's driveway for free.

    Some peoples garbage is others fuel to the future.

    :rolleyes: I wonder what people said about the first automobile? You think the first idea or prototype is a F250 with a triton. every idea started someplace.

    Whats your original idea, did you even fallow through to a working model, to see how it would work. How to improve it. and then have the Gaul to put it on the web to be criticized by ....(*&*%$^$#^&*&* narrow minded people.

    sure, i have designed and carried through on many ideas, some good some for naught, and if you read my next post i complimented him on his math at least, however there are things that i can honestly look at and go WTF, i am a farm kid so keep in mind invention and innovations are strong points, but i never tried to put a bale fork on a pedal bike either, WHY you ask, because it is a bad idea.
