    Suggestion for Freewheel...

    Hi! I was wondering if it'd be possible to design a Freewheel with a headlight built-in. I know there's a bike headlight out there that would likely work... With the pivot/swing arm-assembly, I dont see a bike head light working out too well.
    I'm Sam.

    Also a wide fatso tire option for the beach would be nice too.

    Yes, Sam, good thinking.

    For years I have been taking my kids trick-or-treating in the dark and a rubberband does a great job holding a simple bike light onto the front of my FreeWheel. It lights up the sidewalk in front of me.

    Once a cop on a motorcycle was cruising watching the action and he took out his floodlight and beamed me! He wanted to figure out what was the light in the dark.

    That's a good idea, but can we think up some alternatives to rubber bands for those of us with Latex allergy too? I'm saving up for my freewheel now and can't wait!

    Zip ties would probably work as well.

    nah, mold it into the aluminum tube. There is only one way to do things, that the right way the first time. This is a good idea.

    A headlight for the FW is a good idea, but it should not be integral; it should be an optional add-on that does not affect the pricing of the basic FW.

    I have a freewheel and could care less about having a light on it. KISS Keep It Simple Stupid!!! At night I use a headlamp to light the way. That way it points where I am looking not straight ahead. Your suggestion is good but probebly overkill since there are so many other ways to accomplish lighting your way!!!! JMHO!!!!!
