Yea I was board and it was raining so I made some pedals outa some stuff .
There a different design from the last ones and have 3 major diferences
1. the stick is mounted different
2.they fit under the table
3. they work this time
but I guess I won't be using them that much with that stupid addon taking away my fun.
I can post pics later if anyones interested.

The camera got nabbed by my parents they had some award thing o go to.
so I'll get some pics later I guess so in about 4-5 hours there should be some here.
They don't look as horribly as the other ones I made and they work better I think I'll spray paint them chrome. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Ok here they are as I said they would be ok so I didn't get them up last night but there up now so anyway they work pretty good but need a little tweaking to get them just right.

Indeed! Quite a craftsman though and maybe a good future as a carpenter.

I would make one suggestion to get some type of smooth plastic edging or even duct tape and cover the corners of the wood that the bungee cord travels over. The hard edges of the wood will wear out that cord pretty quickly as you move the pedals back and forth.

Crude but they look like they get the job done. I'm sure you'll need a tetanus shot after each use.

No tetanus shot just some tweazers to remove the splinters and maybe some raid to kill the bugs.
