    Re: Mini Warrior Trike

    Cold / Allergy, weather, and life and general laziness kind of got in the way for a bit, but I've managed to do some more work on my project. Good news: finally got the cranks removed--they were a...

    Re: Mini Warrior Trike

    Darnthedog, that makes more sense. Thanks for the clarification. I'll look through my "collection" and see if I can find something more suitable for this build. :)

    Re: Odd thing when replying with quotes

    Just testing, and apparently it may be thread specific. I was in the Steetfox thread trying to reply on peoples comments to my MAG Wheels post when the issue came up. HOpe this helps.

    Odd thing when replying with quotes

    I find that when I reply with quotes, I get maybe for character placements before it doesn't like the space bar anymore. If I reply without the quotes, I don't have that problem, nor when posting...
