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 arenât.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."
Alan Sikiric's Mutandem: "Only from the fields of muck and hazardous grime known as the Jerz could something so horrifying arise!"

Tall bikes galore!
One of the craziest tall bikes out there, and pannier-ready to boot!Photographer: doviende
A burrito built by Mark Veno: "When I moved to Portland I was inspired by the existing bike culture and built my first tallbike. I try to make my freakbikes as usable as "real" bikes. Soon I'll be moving to San Diego to spread the freakbike love to SoCal."
The mystery chopper rider
"No idea about who this is riding the chopper, just happened to snap it on Wells Street. I think he is part of the Chicago Critical Mass group."Photographer: swanksalot
