Of course. I've owned quite a few over the years. 26" wheels, a folding roady, and a couple of 29ers.

In fact, I purchased BigShot Serial #001 a few months ago.

It looks like the ebay ad was pulled. The first couple of bikes in this link use tension cables. Obviously the tension cable designs never really took off. The first one is a Breezer!

This design perplexes me, so unusual.

How do they ride?

I love my Fats. but I also love my Slingshots. They aren't really as strange to ride as most folks assume. I love my non-corrected 29er shown above. Honestly I take it out of the garage before my Wicked on most days.
