    I am finally getting out to ride. Went on my second ride this season, this weekend. While i am enjoying riding, I think I'm going to change or modify the front fenders they still throw a good deal of debris onto my arms

    They're rant squad rims, i think its a bmx company i got them on ebay from planet bmx i think. The hubs were from ebay, and shipped from a sweat shop in china. I just searched for the specs the plans had and they showed up. I had a local bike shop lace them for me

    Welding machine suggestions?

    I learned to weld to make a warrior also. I used a 220v vulcan from harbor freight, Mig with co2 for gas, as i already had it and its cheaper than argon. i read mig was the easiest way to weld, often it's called a glue gun of welding. There wasn't much of a learning curve and after a few break...

    Went for two rides so far, I might need to tweak the front fenders a little, I still had stuff throw onto my arms but the back fender really kept everything off of me

    New warrior seat

    Final with foam glued into place. The foam is the anti fatigue mats they sell for flooring in a gym. I didn't want to risk shaping it with an angle grinder, after issues I had last time, so i used a ryobi hand held sander that uses half in sanding belts, it made it so much easier and cleaner...

    New warrior seat

    My current seat is what's in the manual and I haven't had an issue with it so i don't think I'll be bothered with this one if it works out, but I'll keep it in mind

    New warrior seat

    Good to know, right now my plan is 4 layers, it'll be just under a half inch or 10mm, which is what my current seat has now. The strength was my concern, but I built my frame with 1.5" supports under the seat and back instead of just the recommended flat bar so hopefully it and the frame along...

    New warrior seat

    The seat was the part of the build I hated most, so I'm finally trying to make a new one. I'm steam bending 1/8th in thick wood and gluing layers together like a skateboard, then I'll glue foam on top. The original seat wasn't uncomfortable, but mine Just didn't come out like I wanted, I'm...

    Next set of fenders installed and ready to test. If they work out okay, it'll be time to remove and paint.
