Cool jack you have there.
What do you do when you have to lift the rear tire on the bike?
Ex-AHRMA Thruxton Cup Series bike
Unit Sidecars leading link front end
Sweet ride !!!!!!!!!
What side care is this? Very nice! Thx g-
Can somebody explain to me why alternate front suspension is used on many of the sidecar arrangements here? Thanks, g-
The pivot point of the tire is moved to be more inline with the angle of the triple tree and make the rig easier to steer. This is accomplished by having a custom built triple tree or by having a leading link front suspension.
Ride an outfit with standard teleforks, then jump on one with links, hub-centre or trail reducer.
Got an outfit, or just thinking out loud?
One may struggle with the geometry but you wont have any confusion when it comes to the practice.
One objective is to reduce the trail. From something like 100mm on a standard telefork bike to, um. I don't care what it is, just that it works. Being bespoke, there is opportunity to build in a facility to alter the trail, in an effort to optimise it for your combination in the situations you ride.
There are also issues of strength and stability of the front end, amongst others.

Thanks for your interest.
I just ordered an "Einzellheft", Winterfahrer # 1 ( although they appear to be out of stock ?? ) and a "Winterfahrer" badge
received a friendly email from Heidi Franitza, telling me the magazine will be out in Januari and they'll send it together with the badge when it arrives from the printer!
G, that's a DMC sidecar.
You should come to the EGT with us next summer so you can buy the stuff live from Martin and Heidi. Also a great opportunity to see the bikes from the magazine in real live.
