    Tips on building mowercycle?

    Anybody else make one yet, and do you think it will be better to just tow it behind the the bike? It sure looks more do-able both to build and to ride with the blades dragged behind instead of plowing out in the front inefficiently. Thoughts?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    In my minimal experience with a push mower, I think it takes a lot of effort to push, so much effort that I don't see how a bicycle could be used at all. But I always let the grass get way too tall so that's what my experience has been.

    I guess you can tow it behind. Never tried it before, you just got me thinking. :/

    Have you mown your lawn with a push reel mower?

    Is this meant as a cool toy(do it) or as a semi-practical way to mow your lawn(don't bother) ?

    To your specific question I think you would want pressure down and forward into the mower.
    Mine tends to skid on even moist lush grass using it normally.
    To pull it I think youd need a whole different heavier frame like the gang mowers used on golf courses.
