Tallbikes make great touring bikes. They command attention: drivers that are paying attention to cyclists is the holy grail of bicycle safety. They can hold a lot more cargo, and they have the potential to transform their environment by putting a smile on the faces of most of the people that see it.

Skunk woke up one morning early April 2021 and made a sketch on a piece of paper. 160 labor hours later the sketch transformed into something rideable.

Description

This ship is a no-compromise build from the ground up, in response for the demand for more medium range day missions. It is the sister ship to USB Cloudbuster. While Skunk has taken Cloudbuster on centuries and long range day missions, it weights 160 or so pounds and looks like an overworked garbage truck in the daytime.
