They've moved the HC back a weekend because of the past snow issues. (Used to be first weekend in June) Should be fine tomorrow. Probably won't be too cold going up because you're working so hard, but pack a jacket or vest with arm and maybe knee warmers for the ride down!

See you and Joe tomorrow!

Cool downhill video!

Back again with a great video from Yeti cycles. No affiliation, not spam, just a well made short.

If I could ride like these guys it would be awesome. I don't mind the peddling either.

It was a sad day in my garage today. I rolled the motorcycles out to take pictures for their for sale ads. I'm moving and going back to school. I'll have zero time for dirt bikes. On the plus side I'll be restoring a '71 BMW R75/5. So to take my mind off the bad news I went for a short but ass kicking hill climb. I ended up walking a bit because I couldn't get any traction.

Finally pulled the trigger on a SS 29er. Found a deal on a 2007 Kona Unit 2-9.

I give it about another 12 hours before people are sick of jokes regarding my unit.

Y'all check it!

I was thinking of building the 'Streetfox Tadpole Trike'. I have absolutely zero experience in bicycle building, but I know how to weld. Any thoughts? Anybody built one?

Was thinking of taking it one step further & attaching a 5hp motor under the seat for those srs uphills.

Thoughts? Condemnation (it is JM, after all)? Encouragement?

steel bike frames are made from very thin wall high alloy (cr moly, etc) steel tubing, and are generally built with lugs and brazing, not welded.

yer on your own with the 5hp motor
[just watch your states laws on 'motor driven bicycles' or you'll find yourself explaing it to a Cop and then the DMV....



edit: ok, tried the website again and it worked. oh. square cold rolled steel tubing. that thing is gonna be HEAVY.

Looks like it'll be one heavy mofo. The 5hp might be a requirement.

Recumbent trikes aren't really my thing, but post pictures as you build the frame. It'd be cool to watch it done.

Plus that front hub setup looks kind of sketchy. I don't think bicycle hubs are designed to handle that kind of single sided setup, not to mention the loads of two wheel steering on a bike that heavy.
