I've taken my bike on the Dallas Dart rail several times, but today I rode the DCTA train up to Denton Texas. I guess next I have to ride the TRE train over to Fort Worth.

After years of using TriMet in Portland Oregon - I can appreciate seeing such a nice bike on a train...
Electric bike on an electric train - that's cool.
Someday I'll have my dream and find a small enough diesel engine to have on a bike then I can take that on AmTrak and have a diesel bike on a diesel train "rollin coal".
 
Is the saddle mounted backwards?
Is there a support bracket mounted to extend the saddle mounting?
The way that the saddle is mounted looks precarious, is it sturdy enough to sit near the tail end of the saddle?

I think this seat would work either way on my bike, but this is how they're mounted on SurRons. I feel like the upward angle of the front of the seat goes well with the upward slope of my frame. The mount I made is pretty sturdy. Another consideration is the seat has clips molded in the rear to mount an extended fender.
