I think those handlebars are set a bit too high, they might want lowering a bit for better riding posture.

I cut off the front of my old bike and ride with that. Then when I pass people I pretend to swerve, hit the bike wheel on the curb and drop it. Then i dismount and say, "Damnit I just bought this!"

I did something similar with a canoe that I put wheels on to row around town, only I'd sink it in puddles.

Yes, maybe. But it's more comfortable like I've got it on the picture, dont you think?...

I know of a couple on this forum, probably coker riders who would disagree with that, maybe they'll speak up and surprise you.
