Wobbly Cyclone Bracket Cure.

Post by Hugh-Jassman » Mar 09 2019 2:40pm

When I got this mid-drive kit I looked around to find an image by DingusMcgee of a bracket that would hold it rock steady. Then I built my own version. Angle bar and flat bars with bolts holds it very steady. But it is the tube between the two flat plates that makes it wobble proof. So if you have a Cyclone Mini just find a tube that will fit and bolt the two plates together with low headed carriage bolts, to give you room for chain rings.

The shape of the tube does not matter as long as it fits. And it needs to be wide enough to suport a wider area than a one inch round tube would.

I used aluminum for ease of cutting and filing. It is simular to wood without the grain. 2024 or 6061 alloy

It was a joke, saying how manly it was to use metal and how not manly it is to use wood. Just reminded me of this channel
