Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've had several requests for this bike and I really needed a break from my updates for my animated farm animal creations that I created for the farm contest at MTS2. I didn't realize this would take quite so much time to create. I'm very new to creating animations and if you need perfection I'm afraid I can't give it to you. I did really try to get the legs to be in sync with the pedals but I'm just not able to accomplish this. The animations are created seperate from each other as far as I know there isn't a way to create them together, if there were it would make it 100% easier.

I've created two ride option one that they ride the bike in a normal way and the second they will do some wheelies.

It is found under Knowledge/Exercise for $149.00 simoleons.

Adults, Teens and Elders are enable to ride either option. They gain fun, fitness and earn body skills while riding it.

Video of bike is posted here:

Note:If Sims are riding it when you exit the game it will disappear, because it is controlled by an NPC.

Wow this is really great! I think it's so amazing how much you're opening up the field of animation in the sims. I thought your farm animals were awesome, but this is even cooler! I love to see how much better each download gets as you learn more

It's always nice to have more options for skill building. It's great that the bike actually moves from place to place. I like the laughter sound effects too. Very nice work!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This is something that I have always wanted for the Sims since Sims 1. I am a cyclist myself. Thanks to you my sims all of them have the same pleasure. And it makes so much sense. Why didn't Maxis give kids and teens bikes instead of cars? I mean cars are nice, but not every kid has a car.

Very very nice =]]
is it possible to have a "Ride to School" Option?
If they can't afford a car and don't want to take the bus then they should at least be able to ride to school =]]


nice work again, thanks for the bike =]]

These animations are a HUGE improvement on your other objects, do you think you will be updating your other bikes to slow the speed on them too? IMO, I can live with things like hands or feet aren't perfectly placed as long as the speed looks real. You nailed it on the head this time, thanks!

Great idea, Rebecah! The bike is really cool. I'm sure with time you'll get the animations the way you want them to show. Keep up the great work! Till then I'll set up a lot in my game to get a Tour de France feeling ;-).
Thank you very much for this object!

All your creations are originative and of high quality. The details like the laughter, (which I also adore so much with the toddlers) is like a bonus, and show that you also have fun with pushing this game to new frontiers! Thanks,

You have brought so much pleasure to us with your creations. You also bring laughter to us when are games have been dull because of the same old thing.
Thank You from the bottom of my Simmie's and my heart.

I just tested this one out and it works amazingly. My Sim is happy and fit, and I'd like to join the chorus and say the laughter sound effect is a neat touch. FTR, I only have Base Game, too.
