hi all

I think I will start this as my first welding project , few welds and I have all the pieces already.

Couple of questions about the trike version of the spin cycle.

1) have you changed the angle of the rear wheel mount so it is square to the ground and not angled 15' as the book suggests ?

2) what have you used for the rear tabs that hold the wheels ? I wondered about blanking off the tube with some 1/8 steel but making it stick up the same amount as the tube depth then weld a 45' off cut of tube to this ?

3) do you need really strong BMX/MTB style forks if you aren't building the spincycle version ?

4) having built and ridden one ? would you lengthen it a bit ? if only to get more clearance for your arms ?

regards Paul
