“When I designed the model, my main goal was to capture all of the mechanical functions of a real bicycle, including the drivetrain, front/rear brakes and working freewheel,” says SleepyCow. “It was very challenging, especially making the bike frame sturdy enough to hold the rest of the model. Nonetheless, I am extremely satisfied with the end-product and flawless riding mechanism. I cannot wait to share this build with the rest of the LEGO community.”
