    Re: Deltawolf wheels my cheat

    The welder I use is a gasless mig and the fumes that come off when I weld have turned the spokes that color, most of it will rub off. Also if I'm honest the wheels themselves are old wheels but...

    Re: Delawolf chain managment question

    Hi, the other derailleur is there as a tensioner to stop the return chain flopping, it's part of the deltawolf plans and works pretty good but tubing would work as well.

    Deltawolf wheels my cheat

    This may be a bad idea and possibly has been done before but to make my wheels I did the following....

    I took a complete mountain bike wheel (with a steel hub). I removed the axle and bearings...

    Re: Delawolf chain managment question

    Thanks,

    the green pulley is gone, I'll add an extra few links to my chain. This is how the pulley system looks now. The bolt that holds the pulley is the wrong way round by the way in the...

    Re: Delawolf chain managment question

    just an update

    The green pulley worked ok on its own and the gears change better but it was hardish to peddle - 17 mph was all I could reach and it felt as though I was peddling through porridge. ...

    Re: Delawolf chain managment question

    Thanks Emma,

    the gears will change with or without the black pulley so am opting for removal of the black pulley and relying on the green pulley. I noticed with the black pulley it...

    Re: front wheel question 20" or 26"?

    trying to stick to the important angles on the plans as Emma suggested but I think in the case of my head tube the angle may not be completely right (got carried away with welding it up before...

    Re: front wheel question 20" or 26"?

    Thanks for the explanation, I'll go with the 20" front wheel as it's less weight and looks better. Once the trike is done I might switch to the 26" front wheel out of curiosity as it's not much...

    Re: front wheel question 20" or 26"?

    I'm comparing the same trike but with different front wheels. so take my trike with a 26" front around a race track. Then do it again, same rider, same trike but this time sporting a 20" wheel....

    front wheel question 20" or 26"?

    Hi,

    I've got my rolling frame built and 26" back wheels on the trike.

    I've tried two different front forks in the front head tube to see how the trike looks with a 26" wheel and then...

    Re: deltawolf axle dilema

    Thanks Kevin,

    I did exactly that, I used an electric sander to take off most of the excess metal then used a length of emery paper by hand like a shoe shine. It took maybe a couple of hours at...

    Re: deltawolf axle dilema

    Hi Ethan,

    I'm not the best welder but I can weld.

    I've been lurking myself trying to decide which Delta to build. It was a close run thing between the Deltawolf and Timberwolf as I like ...

    Re: deltawolf axle dilema

    Unfortunately I've not got access to a lathe but funnily enough I've got a length of 3/4 cold rolled steel (which is approx 19mm). The pillow blocks and collars fit this but there is about 1 mm of...

    Re: deltawolf axle dilema

    Hi Emma,

    I've read your posts on your tadpole 'quad back end' (it's bookmarked) and will be using 20mm free hubs as happily I discovered I have some.
    In regard the steel I got it from a...

    deltawolf axle dilema

    Hi all,

    my first delta build, I've opted for 20mm axle (maybe a bit of overkill but I'm going to run with it as I have all the bits).

    I've got my pillow blocks and 20mm axle collars - which...
