    You can't beat a good rack - in my opinion !

    There are 3 levels of inside storage: On the floor. The easiest and the most inefficient and it gets better from here on. In cupboards or up the wall, usually happens when the floor is full. But, you still have to be able to get to things. In the gap between the floor and the ceiling. A hard...

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    One extreme to the other. Now I'll be thinking about this post when I get back out there. Thanks, I think.

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    Most of my group riding involves being last, or it did when group riding was allowed. I have got used to seeing virtually nothing other than rear ends.

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    What is the pastime? Trying out different rear ends?

    Bored Last Summer.

    I have been exercising mine for the last week - forcing some trees to adopt a horizontal rather than a vertical stance. Mine didn't get much use for about 5 years after purchase but getting a lot now. Easy start, reliable, a great saw. I'm glad my wife made me get it.

    Was that a Husqvarna 350 chainsaw?

    For those for whom it don't work, here is the text: Cycling - is it just about the riding? Not for me it isn’t and I need more from the experience. My riding has a couple of added attractions to provide a bit more incentive to ride. I ride a recumbent tadpole trike that I made myself. Being...

    A New Type of Vehicle

    I'll remember this discussion the next time I see how fast I can go on a certain section of the local trail. Have managed 38kmh so far and think I will leave it at that. I have heard reports of some people exceeding 60kmh down a nearby small mountain on road bikes and have often wondered what...

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    Some recent publicity last Saturday, after being asked to write a 500 word newspaper article, can be seen at: https://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/6698494/tech-trikes-and-trails-all-add-to-rides/ Working on some follow-up ideas as well. You never know where such things lead to. It has...

    My street fox

    My steering is effectively the same and does not suffer from bump steer. More natural for me than USS that I have never used. The only steering problem I have, not caused by that, is a steering wobble if you try look mum, no hands at speed, but who wants to do that? Was a bit frightening the...

    Unfortunately, you will only know the safety limit when you exceed it.

    How much would this ruin the tire?

    The further you ride, the lighter it gets, the faster it goes. Great as an oddity but I think I would like another wheel to help keep it upright. The thought of an involuntary hot bath if it falls over is not very inviting.

    One normally leans into the corner on a conventional bike. Anything between straight ahead and the front rotated through 90 degrees, let's assume left, would cause the rear half to lean to the right, out of the corner - and vice versa. That is because the top end of the pivot leans to the...

    How much would this ruin the tire?

    Impossible to guess. Looking at what appears to be an absence of calculated profiling of the timber roller, I would say that the degrading possibilities have not been addressed. The motor shaft, and the roller rotate at the same speed. The speed of the roller differs, depending on exactly where...

    Not intimately involved with such things but, wouldn't the pivot angle on the two-wheeler cause the rider to lean out on turns? Isn't that the opposite of what you want or is that something peculiar to these machines?

    A New Type of Vehicle

    There is always a better way of doing "it". That's where the fun is. Everything you find or post is potential inspiration for someone else to try something. It's all part of design evolution.
