    At this stage, you are getting closer to my typical answer to the tadpole suspension problem.... just suspend the seat! Brad

    Oh, but of course Sir, we have all of the luxuries one would expect at a 5 star ShackerSpace! I just dug the pool this spring, mainly because I was told it could not be done in one day into the red clay. Yes, sadly, those around me do know how to trick me into going overboard by feeding my...

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    The tremclad rust paint is really amazing, I used it on most of my yellow bikes and it looks almost as good as sprayed on paint. If you really care about the bling, you can mix it down with paint thinner, and put it on in 5 or more coats to get a hotrod quality finish. Oh, and the bonus for me...

    And thanks to the almost 45 degree, 500 foot long hill back to the house, where I trek at least 20 times in a day, I am also known as "QuadZilla".

    Come on over! Here in the back woods of Gillies Ontario, you will enjoy a 15 minute trip through waste deep snow (November to April) out to my shack... For those brave enough to make the trek in -20 or -40 weather, you will enjoy a luxurious work day in this 40 foot construction trailer that...

    Others bikes throughout the world•DIY Freakshow

    The front wheel forward reverse penny farthing with linear drive is innovative. It makes more sense than the fwd standard version. Thanks for all of this inspiration! Brad

    Yes, integrity in all of these areas would be a massive ordeal with bolts, glue, tape, or bubblegum!... bottom bracket, head tubes, kingpins, and suspension points. I can honestly say that I will never attempt a no weld bike or a wooden bike as I just don't see it being feasible. Of course, I...

    I looked at the teaching gig here, and almost took some part time work at the College. The problem is that they keep you on call and on a sporadic schedule. Living an hour from town, I might as well just save the gas money and use my time to grow more food. They are always looking for part time...

    Thanks! Hmmm... working in a stable on a farm may actually be better for my health! By stable I mean.... I just hope to find a job. Since March, I have put out over 60 resumes! It's not as easy as it once was out there, and "practical experience" is worth nothing to recruiters now. Brad

    This is the type of thing I have been doing for a living. The problem is that R&D is hot and cold, so I have decided to give that up in search of a stable career. Along with "Gator", I also did a robotic grain picker and an automatic micrograin measuring system using machine vision. I don't...

    I must admit that I truly believe that a no weld bike will never work. Ok, it may "work", but a flimsy and unsafe ride at best that would take 10x more effort to make than just learning to weld. Certainly not my kind of thing! Brad
