Hi folks,

I made a simple spreadsheet to provide some weight estimates using some look-up tables referencing published weight per Foot/Metre of various round & square tube sizes.
If anyone wants a copy, please let me know and I will e-mail to you direct.

Happy to upload to AZ if there is a repository for such tools on here.

Best wishes and Happy New Year to all,

Dan.

Thanks Dan--add me to the list if you can--might save me working out the metric version of the other chart you provided!
steveg@myself.com should work.
All the best,

Dan

looks good , however I don't have enough knowledge to alter it and the first bike I wanted to put into it was the plans I found for the Dutch Speed Bike :-

That has tubing sizes of 45 x 45 x 1.5 , sorry !

OK, Paul let me fix that for you in the next version (easy to add more data to the table).

Was not sure how far to extend it y'see.

Will post you an updated version as soon as I have added the relevant data.

Today or tomorrow (after my hangover subsides).

Dan.

....I guess if you really wanted to go light weight, and still use steel, there's always 'drillium'. Mind you, it would be nice to have access to a laser cutter for that amount of hole piercing :(

I'm thinking of using high-grade Unobtainium for the next bike.

They use it for making very shiny shovels, so you can guess how fast it will go ;-)

Vinyl covered "Drillum" might be a practical idea lighter than normal steel and weather proofed to boot .

only an idea


I will hang my head in shame and leave quietly by the side exit
