    Re: Making ones own spindles and king pins.

    Knock them out from the inside using a hammer and a brass or some other soft metal drift. Just tap around to remove them evenly.

    Thanks Emma, I'm using Avid's. so I'll stick with the Warrior layout.
  3. Re: 20" wheeled e-trikes------ the continuing story----

    Emma, I'm about to change the brakes on my wife's Streetfox to disc. If you have time, do you have any close up photos on the caliper mounting set up that you used? I believe that you did them...

    Re: Stand on e-trike build issues

    Yes, it would need to be strong to support a standing rider, but the joint between the stem and the handlebar riser could be welded so that it is solid. Some recumbent risers are designed to hinge to...

    Re: Stand on e-trike build issues

    Most short wheel base recumbents use a standard head tube, and extend the steering by attaching a tube from the handlebars to a regular stem. I've done this for my SWB with some fabrication using ⅛"...

    Re: Winnipeg Highroller

    I'm still learning to ride my two wheeler bent. Starts are the most challenging, and I can see an advantage to having a motor assist especially on up inclines - you can't always choose where you have...

    Re: Danny's Daily Delta

    Neat mechanism Dan. Looking forward to see it working under dynamic loaded conditions. You'll need to get a camera operator following you as you put it through its paces.

    Re: Thoughts on a custom LodeRunner trike

    For chain, I'd go with either KMC or Shimano for strength. Both are available on Amazon.
  11. Re: Wheel sizes on the Warrior Recumbent Tadpole Racing Trike

    On mine, the fronts are 20" and the rear is 26". The rear wheel size is discussed on page 6 of the plans.

    Re: Thoughts on a custom LodeRunner trike

    I made my own pack, a 14S/4P set up for my wife's Streetfox. I made my own spot welder to assemble it with pure nickel strips, and it works very well. The cells, charger and the BMS came from China...

    Looking good Dan. You should a good view from that seat! Looking forward to see how the rear end works out, and of course, we'll need a video!

    Re: Danny's Daily Delta

    I really enjoying watching this go together. I wonder how those headset bearings are going to fare when used in horizontal mode. Do you have a cunning plan for setting them up?

    Re: Hello from the City of Destiny (Tacoma, WA)

    Re: Winnipeg Highroller

    Thanks. I was more interested in the trail - the distance between the wheel contact point and the point on the ground where the centre of steering tube projects to.

    Re: Winnipeg Highroller

    Looking good Hugh. I'm sure that it's a lot cheaper than a Bacchetta! I haven't ridden my SWB prototype for a while - just too many other things to do. Have you ever measured the trail on this bike?...

    Re: Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    Thanks Frank. I wasn't too worried about the fumes, just the flaring which could end up coating the tungsten and messing up the arc shape. Next time, I'll try it without zinc removal and see if it...

    Re: Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    On the subject of welding EMT, I find that it flares up a bit and I have to scrape/sand off the zinc coating before I weld it.

    Great lines on that frame Frank! What is the square tubing section size? I'm testing my SWB two wheeler at the moment. It's an adventure - not so easy to adapt to as I thought it would be, but I'm...

    Re: steering for streetfox

    You've got plenty of wall thickness, and you don't need to remove much. It may be seam welded tube, and so may not be round or even. I'd be inclined to ream out the tubing ends just big enough and...
