    What do you think of these wheels?

    They should be fine but aren't cheap. Plenty of 48 spoke ones much cheaper on ebay. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/184960123421?hash=item2b107b821d:g:tjYAAOSw6iJg-o2t

    Tilter mk3

    Turns out I bent the M12 8.8 axle bolt too. I had to cut the head off to get it off the hub.

    Viking crossover transmission

    From what I see of the design a std right hand thread freewheel screwed on the left side will auto tighten when driven from the front seat and will freewheel when driven from the rear seat.

    Tilter mk3

    Yes, the tilting will help unless, as this time, I end up at 90 degrees to the direction of travel.

    Tilter mk3

    I've bought a pair of Sun Black Label rims like the picture above. They are arguably among the strongest that exist, though like every rim are designed to be strong on a bike not a trike.

    Tilter mk3

    My daughter has a Kuga which just about swallows it. It's the 2nd time she's got me home after the BMS died a week ago. The battery maker fixed it without any fuss. A 72 year old cyclist stopped and enquired about my misfortune which passed the time awaiting recovery. It could have been a lot...

    Tilter mk3

    Just not strong enough to stop it. The rims currently fitted are these... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32921235983.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.1d5c1802XwZ4hw Relatively thin across. I'm thinking of something more BMX oriented with multiple box sections and fatter. I'm also going to fit a...

    Tilter mk3

    Taco anyone? Got into a tankslapper at about 35mph down a big hill. Got it down to about 10mph before it coughed me off on the high side. Fortunately the high side is very low. A couple of scuffs to my elbow and a twinge in my back. Biggest damage is to the wallet. The question is whether to...

    Pivoting steering mechanism

    It's not just in use for rear steer, front steer makes use of it too. A pair of old Masa slingshots.

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

    Looking good Paul. Would like to be at York myself but I'm required for a garage construction at my eldest's this weekend.:( Perhaps you need to add a motor to that trailer? Or perhaps the towing vehicle?

    Rear disk brake caliper mount

    Every caliper I've ever seen had some wiggle room in the mounting area. Once the mount is made, bolt it to the caliper and set any wiggle room to the middle then offer up to the disc and clamp in place via the caliper itself prior to welding. If welding warps anything then the wiggle room will...

    Pivoting steering mechanism

    Unless I've missed something you are describing what is commonly referred to as tank steering. It's fairly common on tadpole trikes.

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

    Wouldn't a pannier hang in front of the trailer even if you'd used a straight arm? At worst it'd sit on that arm which would provide a modicum of extra support to that pannier. With my trailer it tried to crab on being pulled from one side but has been fine with a central bar. I would ask...

    USS question

    I assume you refer to two wheels rather than three. I've not found any slop in steering linkages unless the actual rod end has worn and even cheap rod ends aren't under much pressure on steering linkages. There's plenty of manufacturers selling very expensive bikes with USS and they couldn't do...

    Church Pod build

    This is one of the air scoops that'll be replacing the headlight mouldings. Also the nifty red matched Chinese calipers now come in other colours too. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003814230536.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.57dc18029lAlE2

    MJ’s Streetfox build

    Just got rid of it myself. Just a mild inconvenience rather than a hindrance for me though.

    Woody?

    Glad I dont have to ride it would be my first thought. Flevo style engineering looks like an easy way to an injury to me. The bars are going to move quite oddly given the pivot. If Flevo geometry is the way you are going I would think having your body more upright would help in trying to stay on it.

    Church Pod build

    Yes. Will have to make some and also for the tilter.

    Church Pod build

    The best laid plans etc etc. The pedal system I was planning to use is not something I actually liked when I tacked it in. I used some crappy bearings in the BB to simulate some load and it's stop stop stop at many of the potential points. Whilst I'm sure that would improve with technique it...
