don't pay attention to the trolls on this site that ride trycycles like woodsman
it's because we get a lot of people posting on here about how they're going to do this and that to something totally unsuited and then get all bent out of shape when they get told it's a dumb idea. even worse when their first post contains the phrase "i've been told it's a bad idea, but i think i can make it work". the people here are mostly bike industry or racer based, and so modification for form is looked on in a much less favourable light than modification for function.
and, by far the biggest issue imo, is that people come here looking for validation for their stupid ideas. i put paso wheels in my monster, because i wanted to**. i couldn't give a shit if no one else likes it, and wouldn't mind at all if they pointed that out. that's opinion and expression. it's the the internet. if you want arse kissing, do the ton tends to be far more accepting of the stupid. here, you'll get good technical advice along with ridicule and derision from people who already know how to build a cafe racer, if i may take a quote.
so, suck it up. take the good, ignore the bad, move forward and shows us something we don't know.
**(well, in truth at some point i thought it was a good idea, but the time frame between instigation and execution was so long that, once i actually started making it happen i was so far down the path of commitment that there was no point not doing it. in truth, i could have bought a nice set of oz from motowheels and bolted them straight in for what i spent making the pieces of 16" shit fit. so, continue).
