    sources for seat padding material?

    Recumbent butt look it up on BROL ? it is not the type of foam you are using , if your seat is almost vertical all your weight is on those muscles. Aim for a seat back around 50' +- 5' I think mine run about 45' more upright than most ? Mine is on the left. paul

    Big Question

    Could they ride one of these ? hase Pino either buy one second hand or build a clone ? Hotel would mean little luggage toiletries and one change of clothes each then post other clothes ahead/post dirty ones back. Only one vehicle to e-assist ? they could perhaps take turns on the recumbent...

    Quad build.

    All this 3D design/rendering I assume saves you time because you have to travel somewhere to build your Quad and also you want to make 2 or more hence the laser cut parts speeding up the build. As my building is done 15 meters from my front door in my garage , building is much more immediate...

    Big Question

    The tandem trike will have a huge turning circle , not handy in an urban environment The coupled deltas can carry a front wheel and easily become 2 making moving and storage easier ? If engineered to stand on their tails the pair only need to take the same floor space as a single DF bike. More...

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

    Look what I found spread amongst my 3 bike sheds ! What is left of Python Mk1.5 [ non tilting ] Now there were 2 reasons to re-assemble this :- a) I had hoped to lend it to Dale Rider and tempt him onto the Darkside before he finished his Warrior and Streetfox..... Dale Rider and...

    maddox in my view that is simply not do-able ? Approx 1400 km so 100km a day for 14 days that is assuming you don't get lost[ yes I can see there is a small ferry section that only amounts to 170km ] where are they staying on a night ? Paul

    Quad build.

    Wow so much to discuss , now we can see your excellent renderings. Can I ask about the rear suspension ? How do you plan on implementing it ? e.g is there a rule of thumb for how long to make the swing arms ? What are you using for suspension units ? how will you cope with the huge differences...

    Quad build.

    Emiel Nice Why not rotate the blue seat part through 90' and weld it to the red suspension mounts ? make the rear area behind the seat more useful without that backwards facing stay ? What lives between the red horizontal rear frame and red plate , ie around the green mounts ? Paul

    A selection of previous and current builds

    Hands up I just copied an American design for Python 1 Well it much easier starting with a working design and massaging it into the design you want than a blank piece of paper..... However Popshot & DannyC will probably tell you how perverse I am when I have an idea that I think will work and a...

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

    So got an hour to perform a bracketectomy ? This required extreme concentration as I need to make sure I removed the ' right ' bracket , the right in the picture also on this side. Cleaned up enough to allow a plywood floor to sit flush on the top of the dead axle and also up against it's...

    Is "As good as it gets" good enough?

    Not sure any measurements are really needed ? Either it is agile enough in the riding environment or it isn't ? Also see here :-BROL however where are they measuring from ? are they all taking about radius/diameter ? Of course if you INSIST on a tadpole there are some that CAN turn ? and no I...

    Tilting campertrike.

    Not wanting to be to pedantic , however that is not a Python as the rider is sat infront of the pivot and not above it. It would be intersting trying to ride it. Paul
