comment Rear dropout adjustment screws on fixed-gear conversion
This is actually not a great idea on a single speed bike that depends on axle position to maintain chain tension. Since you have to move the wheel back as the chain lengthens, you'd have to be adjusting these screws to do so.

comment Laws applying to Homemade Tricycles
I don't know about Wisconsin, but it's illegal to ride any bicycle on the sidewalk where I live. It's worth noting that riding on the sidewalk is one of the leading causes of collisions.
