Back in 2002 I began to ponder this thing. I spent hours on the internet looking at ones other people had built. Many of them do have pushrods with linkage and belcranks. I thought about that, but those were bigger, heavier. Mine could have had that sort of system, but it's smaller. I had a little concern about whether I'd be able to make a left turning U-turn with handlebars this long. Turns out it's fine.i think when you have to move the handlebars via linkage its too far, but thats just me.
