    Warrior Trike Build Thread

    Nice looking trike. Are you talking about the front reinforcements ? it would be better if some were added between the rear drop outs and the main spine under the seat ? Like this Warrior Rear frame broke regards Paul

    Going for my second build.

    Hope the fender points are not subject to any vibration ? It is the devils metal and will fail at the earliest/most inconvenient moment and this is usually inversely proportional to the ease in which the part can be reached and replaced ! Paul

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

    Yes Just a though and not definite , it makes the tilt trail infinite as it is parallel to the ground. However if it is not connected ........ Answers on a postcard please to the usual address ... Paul

    Popshot/Emeil/DannyC Any speculation if I kept the 2 stiff dampers and rode it without the front rod end bearing at all ? Paul

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

    As my tilt angle is infinite ? ie. parallel to the ground it does not contact the ground anywhere in my line of sight :whistle: I had not considered it's effect on the Python pivot angle , however it does go someway towards explaining why even with a limited 25' - 30' front tilt [ by the...

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

    The Finn's , leaders in Flevobike/trike developmant have suggested zero trail for both steering and tilt. This is not possible with the steering for a Python front end like mine , however it may be possible for the tilt ? They described it to me thus :- Negative trail is like a ball in a...

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

    I want to see if it is less nervous and less likely to tilt when not wanted if I stiffen the tilt response , I cannot go much harder with M10 fastening only swapping out for 2 x 203 kg Usually you see this phrase from people who have built a :- a) iLean trike no static stability b)...

    Tilter mk3

    Yes to both of you ;) perception can be skewed depending on where you are coming from. Maybe if I had only ridden a 2 wheeler I would be very happy with my tilter. Because I have ridden the Python many miles I want a Python that tilts , that does not really make any sense ! Some French man has...

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

    The bars are on the non-tilting part and so only hold the levers and allow me to control the tilt , steering is feet only. I don't want to ride it like this as I feel unsafe riding it like that , currently it takes all my concentration and energy to keep it on my chosen course [ very tiring ] I...

    Tilter mk3

    Thomas was very particular in saying it only worked within a narrow envelope fell over if tilted to much when stationary and did not tolerate higher seat and narrower track so a very fickle beast to build I think. The Italian concurred with this saying it did not work well until he changed from...

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

    Made some changes managed to improve the chain line and can now get 6 of the 7 speeds without the chain hitting anything on he power side. Attached a parking brake , not working to well unsure why ? Bought some more elastomer's now have 2 x 84 kg so 168 kg resisting the tilting Bought a 94...

    Tilter mk3

    A paragraph of experience is worth a book of theory , especially in such a misunderstood and limited field with few acceptable examples. You must be close to your first ride ? Paul

    Tilter mk3

    Popshot whpthomas assessments are interesting as to the best of my knowledge no one has ridden as far on a tilting trike in the real world [ racing does not count ;) ] however all his riding has been on his Jetrike , although 4000+ miles at the time of his putting his thoughts onto paper is...

    Tilter mk3

    Popshot Have you found this ? BROL discussion on tilting trikes there is a lot of input from the designer of the Jetrike whpthomas which is interesting... However he goes on to talk about Alan's trike and a serious problem it has with braking ? [ page 3 ] regards Paul

    frame broke

    The angle he has added is good locally as it is thick material and has more weld inch's than the original joint, which would have been difficult to weld up now due to obstructions added later. A weakness of the Warrior is the remoteness of the rear drop outs. In use the chain is trying to bend...

    frame broke

    It's not a great picture as it is difficult to get the camera close , however the weld has not failed. The fillet is intact the base metal has torn along side the weld where there is a change in thickness between the fillet and the base metal. If that was cleaned up and the fillet extended...

    frame broke

    Well I did see it briefly , now it has gone again ? From what I saw [ something green ? ] the weld was fine a big fillet and the metal had torn as soon as it got to it's thinnest i.e the tubing wall. Those stresses need moving to another part of the frame hence triangulating the rear end ,as...
