Good thinking Batman. So, Salmiaki in the Left one and Water in the right, or just stick with 2 x Salmiaki?So unhappy with the bottle rack mounts ? though there was a good chance of loosing one/both the bottles cornering if they were fully of water ?
So after a intense bout of thinking I realised the bottle mounts could be mounted either side of the frame mount ?
Leaving me room to bend them upwards and mount the bottles underneath ?
On the right is the first one bent up and bottle mount fixed.
On the left my method , I fashioned a piece of wood with a radius at the point of the bend and screwed to through the bottle mount screw holes to the top of the mount.
Made a template from card and gentle bent the flat mount upwards.
To finish off I welded a cross brace to stop wobble induced stress fractures ?
The gap between the bottle mount and the far end of the tent point should be enough for the bag that carries my inner tubes/tyre levers and front wheel spanner thus removing them from the day bag.
Thanks Brad...Some good work there, and always interesting to watch this thread evolve!
Didn't really think I needed that ? as the Mk1 was stood in the bike shed and this build was meant to be a evolutionary step past that ?I guess that there is a reason for the old saying "Oh-Well, Back to the drawing-Board".
I found that creating a full-scale drawing of my trike (on taped together lining paper) was a positive step overall.
Nice idea both and something I briefly flirted with until I realised I couldn't be ar**d to measure all the parts up and draw them out full sized.....when I was building my LWB, I sketched it out first on the side wall of our house which has white plastered walls. For the SWB I did a half scale drawing. I don't have the patience to learn one of the computer based drawing apps, but they do look very pro..........
