It's a cool looking robot base. Promise you'll add a microcontroller and some sensors to it. The problem would be turning the robot as there are only one front wheel, which is also the driving one. If you intend to make it turnable, you could hook up the back wheels to a servo, and let the servo turn when the robot will do so, and then you let the front wheel motor turn backwards.

Hehe, i did have a good laugh, when it knocked itself over when hitting the wall. ^^

2MPixels is more than enough, as you can see by the fact that the pics are way too big.
Next time, resize your images. And if they'r that blurry, don't bother. They're not worth it, no the effort for putting them up, nor my bandwith.

anyway, nice...riding thing.

Put a float and some paddles on your spokes and you've got yourself an amphibious robot.

Until it shorts itself out for not being waterproof...okay, nevermind...

Cool concept for a wheel.  I like the idea of a servo controlled caster in the back.

You should try attach a ON/OFF button to it, so u wont have 2 put the wire on each time 2 run it, then pray it wont fall off again. Nice robot btw
