As you can see from picture 1 the roof is far to fragile to suspend the whole weight from it , hence pivoting it from the rear shelf that touches the floor and can be strengthened easily if need be..
I have one of the second [ well 2 actually ] hoists , they are truly dreadful with there being...
So following on from If you are short of space
I need to find space for two trikes in a shed that is very full.
So the idea is to mount a tube on the upper cross beam just underneath the large cream castor , about nipple height.
Then make up a frame that hinges on the tube , however...
So I had a couple of phone calls with a southern geezer who kept repeating ...
' I have the idea of cutting some pieces with 45' angles and making the rest parallel '
So then he say's
' I have cut some pieces with 45' angles and made the rest parallel '
I am thinking is he mad , I have not...
Currently yes !
Do I need suspension ?
Is leaning the answer to higher seats ?
Is iLean really leaning and a form of suspension in one package ?
Can I live with any of them ?
You could either pontificate till the cows come home ...
Or build a test mule and then comment from...
Just to add some pressure to the soft southern wuss who is also building a delta :-
Added some hub brake mounts to the rear of the previously unbraked Mk1 rear end.
As this is a test mule the rear end was adapted to be bolt on , then I can use the same front/spine to try out different rear...
Only if I say what you want to hear ;)
Not sure this answers question 1) are the 2 trikes the same ? if not which has the greater distance?
Not sure what ' hip-flex ' is ? maybe I haven't got any ?
Yes ? so ?
It ends where the last piece of metal is welded to it ?
See above , if you...
Ok 4 questions ?
What are the dimension like compared to the orange trike.
are you saying the position is uncomfortable ?
why did you not mount the seat further forward ?
What's the seat back angle ? it looks very laid back ?
Actually all the SS backplates are the same and I do have the fitting for the QR's just not the pins themselves....
Someone on here said your life hangs on a couple of 3mm balls hammered onto a taper ?
Since those fittings also take a 12 mm bolt I was going to use that instead , my life then...
Well made plenty of progress however the image host was down for maintenance so was unable to post anything.
the rear frame is spaced above the floor 5" [ it's running height ] and the pivot is now welded to the front part and we are whole (y)
The pivot needs a minimal amount of clean up...
Well I will try and give you a few pointers.
Most riders will tell you it is the engine and not the bike that gives speed.
A recumbent has a different speed profile than a df bike.
As rule recumbent's are slower up hills a match on the level and can be faster down hills.
If you want to put...
Oops my bad 😭
Idea position , however their trikes goes in the wrong direction.
I couldn't do much about mine as the frame went vertical and really needed to be horizontal at the brake point.
Yours looks much better as there is no frame in the way 360' around the back plate.
Of course I am...
