    Re: Photobucket

    That's a shame, this is pretty much the only forum that you can't re edit your own posts though :(

    I'd better start reposting then :D

    Re: Photobucket

    It's all over the internet, Pb are pretty much holding any linked photos to ransom, I now use post image instead too.

    If an admin here could change user permissions to be able to edit our own...

    Re: Hello everyone

    Yes, I've seen that site, gave me a few ideas, then ignored most of them and did my own thing! Isn't this what AZ is about, build something abnormal, try it out, change things, try again, cut it up...

    Re: Hello everyone

    Thanks, it's always on my mind, it's surprisingly stable really, I was half expecting it to be a little wobbly but it seems ok. The leverage on the "panzer steering" sticks is great and quite...

    Re: Hello everyone

    All in good time Twinkle, got to make this one work properly first, although the thought did cross my mind to turn it around to do that while it was all cut up again :juggle2:

    Re: Hello everyone

    Thanks for the info again, no I've not been to the Mildenhall rally, will look that one up, it's not so far from here either :D

    Anyway, I've cut it all up again....

    Re: Hello everyone

    Ok, tried it out, didn't like the excessive camber, it wasn't very stable so I've straightened it up bit by bit until it felt right, I now have a fairly decnt amount of cornering ability!

    That's pretty awesome really, watching with interest :D
  19. Re: Calling trike owners with suspended rears ???

  20. Re: Calling trike owners with suspended rears ???

    Yes it will double up but you can set them to the softest position, I suggested two mostly to keep the stresses evenly distributed, at a similar angle to my (badly drawn on paint) pic they would feel...
  21. Re: Calling trike owners with suspended rears ???

    Weld a washer that fits pretty tightly over the wheel spindle onto each end of the tubes, problem solved :D

  25. Re: Calling trike owners with suspended rears ???

    Yes, it's noticeably better with the spring, mine is also one of the cheap ones salvaged from a mountain bike, it does appear to have a friction damper and doesn't bounce at all, just rides pretty...
