    Another good bikesnob piece, now that Reynolds bought up Lew and his wagon-wheel design.
    (Also note that Lew and Reynolds are infringing on Sheldon Brown's POWerwheels design)

    Wow, those are sweet! and very affordable, unlike Segue's, and mine, if I made any to sell.

    His wheel mounting is almost exactly what I'd like to do on my next trike. It fits a standard 26" wheel,...

    I built a nice big one. http://www.flickr.com/photos/71527680@N00/3852106469/

    The whole bed pivots on a headset under the deck. The brakes are linear pull, set up on sawn off forks.

    I've made a few bags, one handlebar bag in a similar style to MechanicalRon's, but far less attractive, and one that is basically a stuff sack with a reinforced bottom to sit on my front carrier and...

    I experimented with a four-lever setup on my trekking bars: mountain bike levers on the closer, flat portion of the bar, and old style (non aero) road levers on the front, curved section. The...

    Second on Wright Bros.

    They've got all the frame tools you'll need (though they may demand that they do it for you, as n00bs are liable to break those expensive tools) and everything else. You buy...

    You're fine. the 1/4" difference isn't enough to affect anything, provided there's enough clearance under your fender for it.

    Here's the deal: on Tuesday, June 30th, you come to my house with a bike,...

    Yeah, I can imagine the weight being kind of obscene. My thought is the treadmill would have a freewheel, so when the dog got tired, he could stop, and the harness straps would be long enough that he...

    Bob sells a replacement hitch for their trailers, it is very cheap (I bought one for $20 back in 2003, but I don't know how much they are these days). This is definitely the way to go in my opinion,...

    That is very rad. I'm not so sure about putting a person on it, though, unless you put the seat right over that wheel. (banana seat, anyone?). Are you welding those sleeves in the...

    This debate often gets lost in personal attacks, which is very silly, because I think it is the opinion of many of the pro-choicers that the helmet debate (that is, the part about whether or not any...

    Looks like there are machine screws going straight into the crank spindle - did you just re-space the frame to 110mm or so?

    I've got a team weight of 350 on 36 spoke wheels, rhynolite in the back, some random single bike wheel in front, with no problems yet. Use the 36 spoke wheels for good roads, and those bombproof...

    Awesome! I definitely second that a hiker/biker camp doesn't need much. A place to lock a bike is nice if the site is in town. If you do install a rack though, make sure it's one that a bike can be...

    I've never needed to truck all my tandems at once, cause I can usually find enough riders, but my best and cheapest solution is as follows:

    Bravo!

    I think John has certainly demonstrated that a helmet can help a cyclist survive a crash. And though plenty of us "pro-choice" folk doubt the protective abilities of a foam hat, I don't...

    I just put leather covers on some VO belleville bars. I think covers look way nicer than tape, and perhaps more reusable, as the length doesn't depend on how you tightly you wrap the bars. Just cut...

    Zonatandem: My brother's Gitane has a curved seat tube, also quite a short wheelbase. It's also got no laterals at all- the thing handles like spaghetti.



    Sounds excellent. I'd love to see...

    Nice instructions! I wish I could have seen them a few years ago when I found that mine were set up with the cam backwards (or was it sideways?) and had to stare at it for an hour to get it back...

    Hey, look at that, I do have a few pictures from a tour last summer.
    The bike has since lost the north road bars in favor of risers+bar ends (longer cockpit), and it has new brake levers (Tektro)...

    I've got 126 spacing on my tandem, with 36 spokes, a sun rhynolite 700c rim, an atom drum brake hub, and a 350lb team. I haven't had problems yet with big panniers and dirt roads, so yes, 130mm will...

    Absolutely, I've thought about this, as bridges would provide shear-coupling and definitely make the stays more effective in flexure. Water bottle mounts on those bridges would also be pretty rad....
