    Sticky: Re: New Forum and Gallery now Online!

    Hi Brad

    Re: G;day and advise please!

    Hi Ash

    The weight of what you are planning is getting more than slightly heavy. Unless you have a specific need to carry stuff, there are advantages in travelling light. Try a Google for "Bicycle...

    Re: Merry Christmas to AZ folks everywhere.

    No snow here in Central Victoria, Australia. Weather forecast is 37 to 41 degrees Celsius for the whole of the current week which is nothing unusual for this time of year. Unless I can interest some...

    Re: Buying a welder

    I have only used a stick/arc welder. In the absence of a tutor, there is no better tutor than experience, but you still have to be aware of the process and learn from the results. You can easily burn...

    We are all riding towards the same crossroads and will have to decide which turn to take - unless that choice is made for us as it appears to be in your case. Building is one thing but...

    Re: Bad day in the shop

    I have a saying that has crept in over the last few years: It never pays to temp fate too much in the same day. It has often provided a reason to "close shop" and you'll never know what "construction...

    Re: The Crane - tandem tadpole -

    Long might mean difficulty traversing zig-zag type barriers? Some can even be difficult for tadpoles.

    Re: DIY rear suspension trike

    The complete rear end from a suspension equipped MTB will give you all that is required for rear suspension and, if you keep its bottom bracket, a mid drive and easier chain routing for the front...

    Re: old frame = test bed

    It hasn't been my experience Emma but it may happen with a standard trike. I only towed it behind a bike. Should depend on how heavy a load and how it is attached. I had two axis of rotation, it...

    Pull off the front fork, handlebars, seat, pedals and gears, add a small box either side of the frame. The head stem provides the horizontal pivot axis, add another for the vertical, al pivot and you...

    Re: Postimage.org issue

    Global Search and Replace is the answer. Can be automated with HTML Editing software if the source code is available. Could also enjoy a cup of coffee while doing it.

    Re: No more punctures!

    Probably wouldn't feel squishy if ridden in clay mud which was then allowed to harden. I suppose you could fill them with expanding foam to give a harder ride if you wanted.

    Still being able to do it at 110 is preferable to one alternative that does not require more explanation.

    Re: steering for streetfox

    Would slotting the tube, expanding it slightly, inserting the end or a nut, and welding in place, help? I have purchased females and welded a bolt in square tube this way.
