A Very Big Bike

MoSo PDX 11: Very Big Bike

I saw this commercially-available Tall Bike in photos from NAHBS and it was at the Portland Bike Show. The owner of the bike and company, Joseph VanLoozen, joined us for the Mobile Social.

We discussed the briefly riding around Portland. He’s addressed safety concerns by passing the CPSC and the bike has an ASTM certification. Unanswered is whether or not a tall bike is viable, outside of a bike shop niche. What do you think?
