THis is 12p28s configuration.
gettin' there.. I found some leftover carbon fiber sheet from an aerospace company sitting around.. so the blue panels will be carbon fiber. Sides are milled out .25" and .5" aluminum. Also scrap hopefully...
I wonder how close to the nominal weight I will be with all wax, aluminum, and carbon fiber. I'm hoping within 6-7 lbs of the 51.85lb nominal weight.
I left the front module flush with the bottom like in the rear for the sake of simplicity.. fewer parts to make.. and I guess lower CG. I may choose to cover it all up anyways with custom fiberglass fairings.
Drunk skunk, is the top tube near parallel with the ground when bike is built up? If not, how much of an angle? Looks like 5 degrees or so. I may choose to mount pack at an angle from top tube to make it parallel with ground for cosmetics ( and lower CG?).
