Help!!! I can't find what I'm looking for!

Anyone have any links to companies that sell light weight yet heavy duty splined telescoping shafts or helical Universal joints? (hopefully in the 3-5 Cm Outer diameter range that can handle loads up to 3000 inch pounds .) I'ts a secret, so don't ask waht I'm up to please... Providing links to me just may help you ride better bicycles in the future.



Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean someone is not out to get you.

Try the Thomas's directory. Its a directory of manufacturing, you'll have to find the subcatagory. Local business library should have a set, it is also available online.

Maybe for once that annoying Google advertising will come in handy. Sorry I can't help personally. Good luck.

Looks like someone is reinventing the shaft drive (again).

I've heard of a major tandem manufacturer that uses telescoping seat tubes for custom fit and lower standover.

Exactly.

Shaft Drive: A solution looking for a problem.
Shaft Drive: Answering a question nobody asked.

Yeah, but how about a full-suspension, 2 wheel drive (by shaft) bicycle? No more pesky chain slap when raging downhill! A front-drive wheel pulling you through the slop! All in the comfort of a fully-suspended bike! Yeah!

yeah, these guys use heavy duty telescoping splined shafts and bevel gears.

You would probably get a lot more help by being more open with your idea. chances are it has already been thought of but not produced, or produced but not widely distributed. remember, bicycles have been around for over 100 years (a good 50 of those were before TV or computers, so people who didn't have **** to do sat around inventing things). there is are good reasons why chain drive came out on top.

that said, what are you planning??????
