  1. Re: Are 26 in front wheels a deal breaker on a tadpole trike?

    How's Biggie coming along? Haven't heard word in a long time.
  2. Re: Building an All Large Wheeled Trike -- Good? Bad?

    Haha, that actually makes sense, and hadn't thought of that. I know I'm in the minority though, as I always prefer a front brake over a rear brake on my bikes. I've just gotten used to it I...
  3. Re: Building an All Large Wheeled Trike -- Good? Bad?

    Completely agree with this. I'm kind of up in the air. I am in complete agreement with you in regards to something between my legs. Hate the Tiller style steering, and it's very uncomfortable...

    My home made wooden velomobile

    If this constitutes as night by you, I'm totally packing and moving. ;p.

    Beautiful machine. I've always been interested in Velo's, but worried the drivers here will just see me as a slow car, and...

    Also looking at it, your return chain is on top of the idler pulley. Perhaps that's creating extra friction?

    New Warrior from Canada

    Thanks again Emma. You're information is spot on as always. Just saw on the tire it's 26x1.xx I believe, so 26" wheel seems to be accurate.

    Thank you Brad, but all the praise should be for...

    New Warrior from Canada

    Thank you for the information!! Honestly, to me that's super confusing. Wouldn't it be better to just measuring the height of a wheel with no tire, and make that the size? Just seems so strange to...

    New Warrior from Canada

    Hello all, me again. Due to time, space, and skill constraints, my first build came to a halt. Instead, I ended up purchasing one. I'm sure you're all more than aware of the one I'm referring to. The...
  12. Building an All Large Wheeled Trike -- Good? Bad?

    Thank you!! This is the very response I was praying for. From reading around I've seen that the taco simply isn't true with properly built wheels. The information I was having difficulty garnering...

    I have a question. If I have a warrior now with a 26" rear, if I add front 26" wheels, I know it'll put the center point steering slightly inside the wheel, and increase the headtube angle. My...

    If the handle bars connect directly to the fork/kingpin/wheels, that's direct knuckle steering. That's what the original Streetfox plans have. The warrior has the under seat steering. This is the...

    New to sport - ?? about riding uphill

    It's slower on a recumbent (guessing on depending who you ask), but you can just crank er down to the lowest gear, take your time, and trudge along. Going down the other side is a treat too, lol....

    Sorry. USS vs Direct steering.

    Under Seat Steering is push and pull, like a bicycle. Push forward on the right and pull back on the left makes you turn left, just like a bike.

    Hello from North Dakota

    You can use 20", 24", or 26". The only thing is with a 24", you're really limited in tire options. To a lesser degree with the 20". Any particular reason you're going for the Direct Steering instead...

    I wouldn't go single brake in the rear. As was mentioned, it is very unsafe. If pulling two brakes isn't favorable, you can buy levers that can attach two brakes lines. The rear brake is more of a...
