    Cerberus - Robot Protector of The Realm!

    I did see some little robots that were ' autonomous ' and when the batteries were low they went to a charge station and plugged themselves in ?

    Ok sap is rising and it's time to start a new build ??? Noooo....

    This is sort of interesting ? A delta rowing trike , a university build I think. They seem to like chains :ROFLMAO: however it does mean they are applying power to the rear wheel on both strokes. It has a very very good turning circle ! Another one with cable steering ? Looking at this...

    Some ready made tadpole front wheels or delta rears

    I have some of those on the back of UnFinished-no1 for the iLean rear end. They are cycle trailer wheels , I mounted them to cranks by dismantling pedals and using the cones to centralise the bearings of the wheel onto the pedal axle then screwed them into the cranks. Pictures I have if needed...

    Ok Unfinished No 1 [ UNF-1 ] Front of fork with reverse cable entry brake. rear of fork with suspension fork bridge welded to back with normal cable entry brake. Added the screw from plate to rear mech to stop it twisting. To remove wheel just completely unscrew this side axle nut and...

    Ok sap is rising and it's time to start a new build ??? Noooo....

    Ok a bit of back ground needed me thinks ? I don't want it for going fast nor long distances so wasted effort is not a concern. What I want is a full body work out , and if I could get that whilst doing one of my normal rides that's a bonus , hopefully it will only be a bit slower than the...

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    My Python runs a 19 gi with a 20" wheel as it is very hilly where I live. You can probably go bit lower as you will have more traction than my FWD set up. You need to either put a keeper over the chain to stop it bouncing off the wheel or better still change the wheel for a short length of...

    Ok sap is rising and it's time to start a new build ??? Noooo....

    Hi all Ok sap is rising and it's time to start a new build ??? Well no , being realistic I have 2 incomplete builds AND no where to store a new one. So the answer is ? Finish the other two , get rid if I don't like/want/need them , then I will have the space ? So No 1 FWD and iLean rear...

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    DannyC said: Who? Me? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: For want of a tension gauge a wheel was lost, for want of a wheel a trike went un-rode, for want of a trike a rider never got through, for want of a rider a message never arrived, for want of a message an army was never sent, for want of an army...

    Front brakes tadpole trike

    The tubing is very slippery and combined with chain lube etc it is almost impossible for a zip tie to grip the tubing. So when riding the chain is travelling backwards and rubs on the tubing , eventually taking the tube with it . The tubing will NOT pass through a rear derailleur ! You idea...
