    My customers took those racks on a tour down the Oregon coast and just reported back that the trip was fantastic and that the racks performed exceptionally well... they are novice tandem riders but long time tourers and now want the same front racks on their touring bikes.

    Compared to the rear rack, it is a pretty simple build with only ten brazed joints.

    We have turned out the hubs for the rando bike and now we'll build wheels around those before we build the frame.

    Here is one of my latest builds. This was my first attempt (and might be my last) at adding some stainless bits.

    Titanium often strikes me as giving kind of a cold, dead appearance. The one in the photo above shows that that doesn't have to be true. Very nice!

    <edit> I have a belt drive project in the works. Can you tell me about your experience with it so far?

    Hello, Allen and All.

    My son and I built the bike shown below to try out a new frame concept called Flying Rider. Most of the bike is my old urban commuter, a 1988 Schwinn 10-speed. The top tubes are thin-wall steel, 5/8" diameter. It weighs in at 31 pounds. Before the conversion, it weighed 33 pounds.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Hello, Squirtdad.

    The bike pictured and the first carbon fiber version are shown on its website: Flying Rider - the new way to ride
    There are videos of it being ridden as well. We're still tweaking the frame design and the harness design. I learned a lot about what needed to be done when i took it to the velodrome in San Jose.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Well, thanks. It was one of my first frames and has been through quite a few iterations since the pic was posted. I'm not sure I like any of them as much as this first one...
