    Is "As good as it gets" good enough?

    What about something like the extra, drop down "5th parking wheel"

    Yeswelder brand welding machines?

    Yeah, know a guy who bought a yeswelder, said he is happy with it. I was going to buy one but only comes with 15amp plug. Obviously not this 7in1 model because i think it's a kickstarter preorder deal only at the moment. I don't buy kickstarter stuff and buying any "never done before" machines...

    DIY Universal Trike Conversion

    Why would you need a width measurement? Measure your body width or bike path width or mock it up and see what feels comfortable/stable for you, right? I thought the photos are great but they don't provide quite enough info to replicate understand a step or 2.

    What about a "Jokes" thread? - I will start.

    I am surprised if he didn't get charged or at least the threat of charges from the cops for jumping out in front of cars on the road and basically starting fights. Oh and ... that police response time 😮 what?

    DIY English Wheel

    Cool. I always wanted to try an english wheel. Let us know how it goes. Do you not think the clamp vertical is too close to the wheels?... and that bolt a bit too long

    How can I achieve this steering ?

    A piece of paper and pen could be used to steer.. my brain closer to understanding that. How about non-mechanical? An elctronic steering system could be simple... for someone who knows that kind of stuff...right? How about a big front wheel and an extra, small front wheel, facing laterally...

    How can I achieve this steering ?

    Do you definitely need UJs? If the trike is just for you, the steering column doesn't need adjustment, and then you can go straight to the bevel gears right.. if they come in various angles..? Or, a worm gear on the steering column can work at any angle to a vertical gear and then have that...

    Any interest in tilting ? - watch this 3 minute presentation

    "As far as we can tell nobody can steer the bricycle around the simple course" pfft, as far as i can tell only a couple of academic nerds tried. I'm pretty sure i could beat your silly invisible gravity. Very cool build though. Can't help but think some parents are paying 10s of thousands of...

    The interesting wheels, the all alloy frame that looks complex, the neat hand drawings, the blue background peices to make the photos better.. wow this is really some project going on here. Nice work.

    New Aerotilt video now with body - this is VERY impressive

    Yeah looks quite nice, narrow with tilt, neat. I will say he makes it looks really fragile or something with how slow and steady he opens and closes it. But i like the clips. ..oh and the scary movie door-sound-effects department might like to buy his suspension set up.i wonder how bad that is...
