    Thanks. I thought it should work, but now have another problem. I would like to replace the threaded hub

    Re: Frame Not Square

    I understand that some warping is common but I am willing to pay to get it done without any.

    Re: No Place To Weld - Little Place To Hack

    Those bamboo scaffolds sound very interesting. Iíve decided to build a minimal weld, bolt-together aluminum trike borrowing some ideas from the N55 website.

    Thanks for those tips.

    During the last few days I've read so many DP reviews that my head is spinning!

    I'm going to do a bit more research and make a decision by next week.

    RIKON Drill Press

  12. Re: Securing Round Head tube to Square Alum. Tubing

  14. Re: Securing Round Head tube to Square Alum. Tubing

    Your suggestion to stuff the top tube into the aluminum square tube boom is a very good one, except that you are not aware that my top tube has already been separated from my head tube.

    I started...
  15. Re: Securing Round Head tube to Square Alum. Tubing

    I donít have a place to weld so Iím looking at material other than steel for my trike build. One material under consideration is aluminum assembled with stainless steel bolts.
