    Hello gents, THanks for the tip for using skate wheels and make a groove in it. Just did it today and it looks as it will definitively work. Next step is putting on the back derailleur. Cheers, Charles

    Hello Again, Sorry but I forgot something. If for turning I want a direct wheel control instead of going under the seat etc.. Is the arm movement not a bit strange when we want to turn? I mean that let us say we want to make a left turn, instead of pushing on the right arm and pulling on the...
