    Where can I buy components for a center joystick steering system?

    https://www.facebook.com/103055771454384/photos/a.133866751706619/133865921706702/?type=3&theater I like the enclosed wooden bike above, but I have never seen a center steering mechanism like this before. I know they are also popular in velomobiles. I think they turn by moving the bar forward...

    Any place stock pair of 24" wheels with 20mm axel holes for tadpole trike?

    i doubt it, all I see are 32 or 36 hole hubs, probably because an axel that thick needs more spokes.

    Any place stock pair of 24" wheels with 20mm axel holes for tadpole trike?

    seems cheaper to just buy complete wheels and delace them then relace with right hub.

    thanks for replies. There's got to be a usa seller of bicycle rims. It would probabaly cost $100 just to ship from Germany.Only usa vendor I found JBI is wholesale only and will not sell to me directly.

    ok, so I see the 20mmx110mm hubs on ebay are $35 each, recommendations to get rims and spokes online? checked bargainbasementbicycleparts and they do not have the fatter rims

    Any place stock pair of 24" wheels with 20mm axel holes for tadpole trike?

    I've got a pair of 26" wheels on an elf velomobile right now, but I want to put fatter tires on so I need a pair of smaller 24" rims for better shock, since this trike has no suspension. the hub is a 20mm axel with 110m length. Looked on USA and Chinese web sites and ebay and can't find a...

    Delta Trike with 2 suspension front forks frame designs?

    I saw this video of a trike who's front 2 wheels are made of regular bicycle forks. I like this design because the wheels and hubs are easy to get. NO custom lacing of a wheel needed. Does anyone have any more detailed photos and scketches of the steering and peddling mechanism of such a 2x fork...

    Building Organic Transit ELF vechicle

    Elf sold most of the units about 500 in the first 4 years, as they rose prices the volume went down. pebl only makes a few dozen vehicles a year, they too are too expensive!. Honestly I think farming the frame out to China, shipping them UPS and then having some sort of bolt together shell is...

    Building Organic Transit ELF vechicle

    Personally I do not think anyone will buy the Elf company and save it from bankrupency so I might be able to buy parts frame etc if they auction stuff off. There are also a couple of start up companies that I might beta test.

    there is a used elf on ebay version 1.5 in colorado, with broken hub motor $1500 plus $500 to ship that I thought about buying, but for about the same price or more likely less I can make my own. still waiting on 6061 1.5x1.5 tubing to come from florida.

    Chainless Tilting Tadpole Velo

    6063 alloy tube can easily be found in 1/16 wall thickness, howevber 6061 alloy is more of a structural grade and is very hard to find in thinner wall locally. 6061 is stronger and what most aluminum bikes are made of.
