    the bikes creator is at…http://home.earthlink.net/~woowoody/pages/pr_rebarbike.htmli'm the hermit with the bike…anotherdanlife@gmail.com i freakin' love it… well balanced and strong. i can weave through people on sidewalks or cars in traffic with no hands… very responsive… also a couple times i've hit decent sized things (branches, rocks) at high speed/no hands, big jolt, then the bike trues itself and stabilizes instantly, all without having to put my hands back on… ya baby. i've often carried large very heavy packages on handlebars, and still good control…. best bike i've ever had…dan
