Thanks for the input. The tube is standard 1.6mm wall thickness mild steel.Chalo wrote:I hope that tubing is thick, because there is a weak point in your frame at the base of the steering post. The rear of the bike is a decent truss, and the front's not bad either-- but where they join together, there's almost no bracing.
My friend Jeremy has been iterating front loaders for years now, and now he always trusses the boom tube through the middle. I think that proved to be a point of failure in unbraced versions.
I don't understand this sentence.agniusm wrote:what about double bottom for batteries controller and charger? Sure it should be enough space and would be well protected.
It handles really well. The long wheel base provides a very smooth ride even with very hard tyres.amberwolf wrote:How does it handle loaded up vs unlaoded, straight vs turns, slow vs fast, etc? Compared to a typical regular non-suspenison bike, at least?
This is a good idea and may well happen.Chalo wrote:Looks great! When are you putting in the sound system?
Thank you for the very positive feedback, I agree there are many possible applications for these bikes and it's happening in Europe and bike friendly cities like Portland in the US.The fingers wrote:Love the cradle styled box and the fine workmanship exhibited throughout. Could easily be marketed worldwide as the ultimate in nanny cycles, and for green-minded day care centers; even industrial applications. Plenty of room also for sponsors to rent add space (Gerber, Toys R Us, Pampers, Kellogs, etc.) to help defray the cost of ownership, as well as other commercial uses (flower, pizza, plants, local delivery-you name it). I'll bet the guys on the Shark Tank Business Investors ABC TV show would like to see something like this. Forgive me for the $$s in my eyes. It's a gem, I love it!
