  5. Re: Update To My Roundtube ChroMo Warrior -- BIG PIX

    The only angle deviated was the last -- from the back of the seat to the rear wheels. The angle was determined by the smallest CLR (center line radius) I could find. Happy to provide any info you...

    Re: Winnipeg Warrior

    Looks great but I think you need to extend your derailleur tube a tad more.... then you don't need an extra flag pole!


    Sorry, I could not help myself.
  7. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    Go with 90mm. The larger diameter gives more surface for the brake pads to grip and less of a distance for the spokes to span thereby making a stronger wheel. Don't rely on Sjscycles to pick...

  10. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    994 is stainless. 819 is not. Only difference. Sjscycles has the HSL819 in both silver and black.
  11. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    I have bought from sjscycles -- you need to look at all the parts that comprise the complete hub and buy them seperately -- no biggy. Sjscycles offers all the parts. When you order make sure they...
  12. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    Oops
    I forgot to add in my last message that another thing in favor of the SA hubs is the fact that they are 90mm in diameter which means you will use shorter spokes than normal and this means a...
  13. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    The Sturmey Archer XL-SD 90mm Drum Brake Hub is surprisingly affordable -- I found them for $125.00 complete. Compare that price with the cost of an Avid BB7 with Rotor and a quality hub and you...
  14. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    So long as they are built up and tensioned correctly --Yes, without a doubt for normal usage. For wild crazy riding or hauling heavy things while riding crazy -- then not so much, 20's would be...
  15. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    Tacoing wheels on trikes is an urban myth -- I challenge anyone to give an example of a tacoed wheel that has been properly built and tensioned. Read the info from the two threads I previously...
  16. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    Gotta disagree -- Sturmey Archer, a highly reputable bicycle parts maker who has been in business for 90 years has been producing single side mounted hubs with 12mm axles for a long time now without...

  18. Re: quote for wheels system for trike - about $1000 with tax?

    I can try.
    As long as the spokes are not "bladed" (wider than normal) they WILL fit -- spokes on average are not larger than 2.3 mm and most all spoke holes in hubs are around 2.5 mm. Go with a...

  20. Re: quote for wheels system for trike - about $1000 with tax?

    Seems much too expensive to me. Now that you have the list of components you can shop for better pricing on the net. I know for a fact you can do much better on the nipples, spokes, brakes, rotors...

    Re: New project, and a question about steering

    No. You'd be achieving a kind of centerpoint steering but the centerpoint would be more like the centerpoint of your trike and not the wheels. Bad idea imho but you could always try it and find...
  23. Re: Factory Seats on our Square Tube builds - Possible?

    1/8th inch steel -- yikes! heavy stuff!
  24. Re: My Attempt at a Fully Adjustable Mesh Seat Mounting on my Aurora

    I believe you are overthinking the problem -- you do not need anything fancy to mount a seat to a recumbent.
  25. Re: Factory Seats on our Square Tube builds - Possible?

    Attaching a seat ain't rocket science.
    1. Determine the pressure points of the seat (where the majority of weight rests -- butt and shoulders mainly.) This is where you need to put the seat...
