I think that's a nice, clean looking little bent. Does the frame feel a little "flexy" due to the smaller diameter tubing for the backbone and boom?

I think that's a very cool looking quad. What was it that was "bad" about it? Speed, handling, maneuverability, or ? It looks a wee bit on the heavy side too I'd love to build something like that to load my 9 and 7 year olds in at the back. It might be a little tricky to get the pivot angle right, but I've built three mid-steered two wheelers so I have a little experience in that department. I think it's great, one way or the other.

The bent was really flexy and I made a little modification to it:


Now it's 100% better! Runs like a dream...

Here is my stable. An HPVelo Speedmachine and an Earthcycles Sunset. The SPM is pretty low but tall for a lowracer and it spoils me with its full suspension. The Sunset has had the mid drive removed and the steering replaced by a Bachetta riser and RANS B39 bars. I forget, sometimes how low the Sunset is when I rest an arm and let it dangle and am surprised when my fingertips drag on the ground.

The Sunset is number 15 of a reported 18 in existance.



Here's a more recent photo of the Sunset with revised chain management and steering.

That is a fancy little green bike you've got, I'm glad to see that someone is still rooting for the Ducks(green and yellow. University of Oregon Ducks.) Similar to the one I want to build(I've got more sketches of bikes than notes in my German 201 notebook!), except I want dual 20" wheels, or dual 26". I don't like having to carry two sets of tubes(I have a 26" 20" now). Is the seat a part of the frame? Or is the seat just attached to the frame? I wonder if a 20" could just be attached to the front? Hmmm...Now I'm thinkin....
Pretty bike.Thanks for posting it.

My first carbon fiber recumbent

I built this bike 4 years ago and I still love riding it.

Now that solves a lot of slack chain/idler problems! Why didn't I think of that? J/K

Nice home built Ciderbob . Really well thought-out design, if not a little too complicated. Can I be a pest and request a picture of your steering setup? I've built a hi-racer and all I've got to do is finish the steering. I don't like the idea of convential handle bars. Steering linkages have always been my thing. How have you gone about setting it all up? Does the ackerman rule come into play? Please ciderbob, HELP ME!!!

Probably because they're slow and steer like a boat......the delta trikes anyway

Thanx for the ideas, Ciderbob. I think I've got a pretty good idea about what I'll do now.

Hey Goatbiker! www.fullyloadedtouring.com You're already rolling with a load acceptable for gallery inclusion. Study the 153 examples (big clear side shots), borrow a hi-res camera if you have to and share your touring bike with the world.

Tailwinds!

FUJIN in Japan.
My best regards.


FUJIN is a paradise chair.
However, it is not good at cornering.
However, it is happy.
The self-made headrest is an one's most charming feature.
