    Re: Delawolf chain managment question

    See my name mentioned here. Don't manage to get on line so much these days though.

    That Wolf build is on this forum too as well as another thread on how I make toothed idlers.

    Re: Trikes for young kids

    I recall seeing a kiddies design a long time ago. May be still out there if you search.

    One major concern I would have is what we call Leg Suck.
    It is why most of us wear cleated shoes or...

    Re: Hi from canon city co!

    Good to see another builder starting a project.
    It is a lot of fun and a great learning experience.
    The trouble is that once you get the bug it's hard to stop.

    Welcome to the zombie clan.

    Re: old frame = test bed

    A friend of mine and his wife rode around Australia on their Logo trikes. Tadpoles similar to a Greenspeed but made here in West Australia.

    They towed single wheel BOB trailers loaded down with...

    Re: old frame = test bed

    That's interesting Kevin. Might have to look at that a bit further.

    By the way. I'm VK6JL but not been on air in quite a few years.

    Re: Tour-ettes trike syndrome.

    Coming along nicely.

    I'll be interested to see how the mid drive motor works out as I'm considering one for my Velo in the not too distant future.

    Re: New member from Newcastle

    Bad luck. I'm on the wrong side of the continent. WA.

    We built a Streetfox a little while back. Build details on the forum.

    Re: old frame = test bed

    Interesting project.
    I like your fork idea for the brakes. When we built Bloffy's streetfox I used square tubing and of course all right angle corners. Yours look a lot neater.
    Will be interested...

    Re: Building a recumbent trike in Berlin,Germany

    Concerning single sided Sturmey Archer drum brakes and wheels. These are used on velomobiles. 70 or 90 mm. I have 90 mm for better stopping.
    They would be available from velomobil nl. Not shown on...

    Well I can view images in a roundabout way.
    I use firefox: Tools.page info>media.
    Then I looked down until I found a postimg.org link.

    Re: WF Cycles Timberwolf build.

    Yes Ethan. I should have mentioned that earlier.
    The drive sprocket would need to go the other side of the rear boom.
    That is the case with the Mango and it has a special freewheel sprocket on the...
  13. Re: Heavy-Load Cargo e-Trike Build: Sydney, Australia

    I'm sure that whatever we have we can with practice do a more than adequate job.

    I think you will be amazed at how good you become after a bit.

    The old Zombie rule of weld, grind, try again...

    Re: WF Cycles Timberwolf build.

    Hi Ethan,

    Yes I'd say it is specially made.
    When I do mine I will likely do exactly what you have in mind.
    Alternatively it should be possible to get a couple of sprockets from a cassette and...
  15. Re: Heavy-Load Cargo e-Trike Build: Sydney, Australia

    Those images look great.
    With regard to welders. As said any will do but some make it easier.

    I'm too shaky to do TIG as I keep dipping and contaminating the electrode in the weld pool (Tried a...

    Re: Tour-ettes trike syndrome.

    Looks like you are having fun there and for me that's what it's all about.

    When I built clamps like that I used some threaded hexagonal joiners from the hardware store.
    Not sure what they are...

    Re: Building a recumbent trike in Berlin,Germany

    That is going to be a very nice machine.
    A question.
    Are the guitars on the wall behind the trike your work too?

    Re: Delta trike recover

    I'd like to do something like that with my Wolf.
    Very nice.

    Of course I already have a Mango Velomobile so some would say it's superfluous.

    The rest should be quite easy now. I found that with the Wolf anyway.

    I've still not made a start but have nearly all the materials at hand.

    Re: WF Cycles Timberwolf build.

    Another way is to modify a screwdriver by grinding it so you get a "pin" like bit that sticks out in the centre. Mine would be about 3 to 4 mm say 1/8" +
