    First attempt to build my own Streetfox

    Thanks Paul, indeed I have a pivot point with plastic bushings. This is not working at all. The back part is not rigid and has a lot of movement from left to right. I can tighten it enough with the bolt/nut system. Do you have experience with solving this problem with an axel as you suggested...

    Th Thanks Danny, you understood my problem. I can’t do your solution because I don’t have rear breaks.

    First attempt to build my own Streetfox

    Thanks, the rack is not a problem, the mounting near the rear axel also not, but the third connection point gives me a headache. It’s a rear swing arm and your third connection point is at the not moving frame part. Did you make a pivot point there too for the rack? If you have photos could you...

    First attempt to build my own Streetfox

    Spokes

    Thanks stormbird. It seams easier to build an atomic bomb than finding out the length of a spoke. Man I never knew there was so much to know about a spoke. I want to build Street fox with warrior steering.

    Spokes

    Thank for your reply Danny. But I have no answers to your questions. I am glad I found someone who is willing to give it a try and I don’t think he even would know which method he is using as he probably only knows one. So if some could give me a rough answer, I could buy 3 or 4 sets with a...

    Spokes

    Hello, I am a Dutchman living in China and I want to build my first trike. I this city of 2 million people I went to 7 bike shops to get spokes in my 20 inch rim and 20 mm open hub with 36 spokes. Not one shop can do it. I didn’t expect this but Now I found an old man ( he repairs bicycles on...
