That's kinda what Dogman kept saying, until he built his, and it turned out a lot easier than it seemed.
Same thing for me--CrazyBike2 (and even the new bike) was actually really easy when I sat down to do it, except for figuring out the motor power drivetrain, to combine with the pedals to get to the rear wheel. But if I had gone with a hubmotor to start with, or some kit like Stokemonkey or Cyclone, even THAT would've been easy.
Actually welding things together is hard, for me, because my house power is probably insufficient and my welder is crappy, but even so, it hasn't fallen apart yet.
But Dogman's bike shows you don't *have* to weld it together--he could've bolted it all together and it likely would've been more than strong enough. And that was the plan with my new bike, but I decided on a space frame and stuff for batteries, etc, that can't be done just bolting it together with the stuff I have.
I will eventually do a bolt-together just to show how easy it can be, though it will probably be a hub-motor instead of thru-the-chain/gears.
