    Re: Decisions, Decisions

    NOTE a Street Fox suspension is a DIY as well if you can't locate a suspension bike.
    A Street Fox can be built complete w/ disc brakes 14mm front axles for under $100. Slightly more for 3/4"axles.

    Re: up_wrong Tadpole trike

    the camber as I understand it makes the two front wheels return to straight ahead easier but no camber would be easier to build. Why put camber on a Street fox and not the hammer head?? is my question

    Re: up_wrong Tadpole trike

    yesterday someone gave me a bicycle but have no clue where it came from. It appeared at my shop door. My plan is to add a tadpole front end so then it is a tadpole trike instead of an up wrong bike....

  25. Re: Wheel sizes on the Warrior Recumbent Tadpole Racing Trike

    Using a 20 inch = lower gearing = better climbing on hills
    using a 26 inch = higher gearing= higher top speed
