Tall bikes, choppers, cargo bikes, freak bikes, art bikes, clown bikes…

THESE BIKES ARE much more than just two wheels, two pedals, and a chain.

Coffin cargo bike

Built by Gabriel Amadeus, a Portland-area designer extraordinaire and fun-enthusiast. When not riding bikes or organizing bike events you can find him building and welding every sort of bike imaginable. And some that aren’t.Photographer: ichad

Steer with your hips

"This is Sailor Neale, with another of his crazy creations. This particular bike is jointed in the middle, just behind the handlebars. It folds fully in half if you don't pay attention. You steer by using your hips to swivel the central joint, and then using the handlebars to simultaneously steer the front wheel." Photographer: doviende

The Reverse Cowgirl

Built by Mark Veno. "It was displayed at PDX Airport when they had the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Exhibit. I was the only non-professional builder exhibiting."

Burrito
