    Thank you very much. My brother actually made it so I will pass on the kudos.

    Cool, thanks. I will play with it when I can open the garage again. lol The other problem (at least I think it's a problem) is the rear derailleur is completely folded up when in the smaller cogs. Not sure if I need to lose a few links.

    Still a work in progress.

    That baby is just begging for a velomobile body. One question, though. What are the things clamped to the frame alongside the seat?

    I'll have to get someone else to take the photo. The kickstand is not sturdy enough to hold the bike up with said toddler.

    I think the seat angle for the child seat should match the angle of your seat. Get to work on it!

    Standard rack with some p clips for the time being... there was a bikeE rack made but think that I will end up firing up the torch and making something custom.

    How does it do with all of that weight toward the back?

    I barely knew it was there figuring that the pannier and backpack might have been 30-35 pounds together.

    Master your environment, and you will survive just fine.
    Chances favor the prepared mind.

    Sprint Trike.jpgThis is my first trike. 2013 ICE FSX. Have had it sense Mid Feb 2014, but couldn't ride it until Mid March when the snow melted some. Have 1,983 miles on it so far. Really enjoying it. Best move I ever made was to this trike. No more sore neck, back, shoulders, arms, and butt.

    I stuck a relative-unused Rev-X wheel on the back of my Baron the other day, just in time for the last regularly-scheduled evening club ride. The NoCom makes a distinctive hollow whoosh sound, and now this one makes a distinctive thwok-thwok sound.
