Gregory deGouveia from California is a bicycle builder. He hasn’t gone with the crowd and focused his attention on fixie bikes though. Gregory’s ‘Bigkidbikes’ span from adult sized versions of kids bikes to custom pedal powered vending carts. From the nearly ten different bike models he’s designed and constructed, we’ve picked out two favorites.

The ‘biGger wheel’ (above) is an adult sized version of the classic Big Wheel. Gregory’s version operates in much the same way and he’s included gears and a handbrake.

The ‘kitten’ bike is based on recycled car tires Gregory found in a dumpster. He’d always wanted to build a bicycle using car tires. The finished version is made from square steel tubing and has solar powered headlights.
