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

    Smashing Stuff Paul. It is coming on a treat. Lots of articulation from that ball-joint. :)

    Good shout Paul, it looks right doesn't it?

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

    I looked up shore A on Google and got this answer: "The Shore A Hardness Scale measures the hardness of flexible mold rubbers that range in hardness from very soft and flexible, to medium and somewhat flexible, to hard with almost no flexibility at all. Semi-rigid plastics can also be measured...

    Can't see why you needed a shelf. There's nothing on the desk. ;)

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

    I don't think there will be any serious issues or dire consequences Paul (well, not for us watching, at least). ;) The man you stole the idea from reported that his bolted together beast had done 4k miles and the elastomer was still good. He has his elastomer and rose-joint arranged at opposite...

    What do you do with your first build?

    My first is long gone. It was truly horrible. 60% overweight (and that was just the trike) ;). Awful direct knuckle steering, and the awful Street-Fox slide-off seat. LOL Second was a bit better, third was fine. This one (frame made by John and finished off by me) is good enough to be my...

    Yes! She isn't a small lass is she? How does she fit inside a tiny Velomobile with all the cakes she eats? ;) She must be like you Paul, Apfel-Cake fueled or similar. ;)

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

    Vaccination/immunity passports are a joke when the same government is clearly stating the vaccines confer no "immunity" nor prevent people from being asymptomatic carriers; merely making it less likely you will be hospitalised and a burden on the NHS. Which is what its really all about at this...

    Too late! I saw what you did there. ;) I hope my wife doesn't see it.

    Can you eat outside in the open?

    Have you seen these gizmo's?

    One of my helmets has a panel, but I don't think the batteries they supply with the are rechargeable, I will look into this too. Still, having either option is better than having it fail when you have looked forwards to a good old "workshop session". :)

    Have you seen these gizmo's?

    I seem to often forget to turn my welding helmet "off" and then I need new batteries. Yes you can buy 1-use disposable 2450's, 2025's and 2032's quite cheaply; but the "dead battery" always seems to happen when the shops are shut. :( I discovered that you can buy these batteries in...

    Neat tilting delta Python trike

    Put bar "receiver" on both sides of the pivot and get to try it out in either flavour? My bar(s), are in 2 independent halves and can unplug from the sockets, so it would be easy to do.

    Good to see you back in harness making Python MK?.? :p

    Neat tilting delta Python trike

    Yes indeed! The "dive across into oncoming traffic" behaviour was really off-putting. To fix it we shortened the rear half of the trike's main keel behind the pivot. It seemed as if the pivot was so friction-free that the riders weight was enough to allow the trike to bend in the middle down...

    Neat tilting delta Python trike

    Paul, While stating the blindingly obvious...Seat mount(s) base and rear will both have to be on the wobbly-bit so it can tilt along with the PPP and the front triangle as a single unit. Tilt-limiters (if required) could be easily fitted to the non-wobbly-bit so it only tilts "so-far" and then...

    First one with a working Python-flevo-trike wins!! :p

    Neat tilting delta Python trike

    I can see how NOT having steering input from bars on the front triangle would be very "unnerving". As an amateur Python-Pilot I find that they are essential to my peace of mind. :) But gentle pressure on the fixed-bars and leaning is what makes it tilt so I guess it is a must. Unless you can...

    What about a "Jokes" thread? - I will start.
