    Going gor my second build.

    Getting slowly more parts. I got today my rear of the trike. Better than I can make myself and way lighter. Comes with mounting for v brakes and disk brakes. Now I have my seat and rear part. Ordering soon the wheels. But first I put the rear in cad, so I can design the front part. I...

    Riding trough water

    That is true. I prefer to ride when it is dry, but I moe use my trike also as I go somewhere. So it replaced my city bike on surten moments and not only for trips.

    Riding trough water

    My rear had mudguard. Front not, but that wasn't a problem. My biggest problem is the water that is trown to the sides of the wheels. That comes under against my legs. I probably will ad mudguards on the front also or do it on the new frame. But that only makes my hands a bit wet.

    Dropped handlebars - why?

    My brakes weren't always good. But I was used to it and I wasn't the only one. But when I started to ride faster bikes, I made that my brakes where good. I drove different when my brakes weren't that good. Not always slower, but different on intersections.

    Riding trough water

    I drove last week after the rain trough the city. I have no mudguards in the front, but it isn't really needed. The biggest problem is the water that is trown up and makes my ass wet. Now I am thinking of making a water shield that I can easily ad if needed. I want to mount it from the...

    Dropped handlebars - why?

    I never had them, but when I was young, i had a class mate that had it also on his bike. Most of the time he kept his hands on top, but as he wanted to go fast or as there was much wind from the front, he went to the lower part. But he had also a racing bike next to it, so he was used to it...

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    Best way as you want components, you need to make for each part a new component before you start with that component. Then everything is in that component and as you need yo change it, you can easily find it all in there. The time line is than for that component and not mixed with other parts...

    I like that dashboard that you have on your trike. I was thinking of adding one myself but i am going to ad a second Phone mount. I will have 2 places to charge my Phone, so adding one isn't that hard. One for my route and one for music and giving me info about other things. I have a few...

    Changing gear whilst stationary with derailleurs ?

    Well as you are geared heavy and you go ip, you don't only use the rear. Also the from, especially with such big one.

    Mounting batteries

    Maybe making a box yourself. I don't know the size of the boxes. I know tgat people used them for there lioo's to charge. You made some big batteries.

    Changing gear whilst stationary with derailleurs ?

    It looks nice, but I have my doubts about it. Like as you ride up a hill, you don't want yo pedal backwards to shift down. You want to kerp your momentum and you loose that as soon as you pedal backwards. For as you need yo wait for a red light, than I see the advantage. Than you can shift...
