    They may have nicked the design from matchless 🙂

    Made these, they aren’t finished. Just bare MDF at the minute. They’ll be joined by shelving across the middle of the chimney breast and we are going to get sliding door to go across the lot of it. The reason for the half rail in the nearest one is so the OH can hang long dresses without them getting crumpled at the bottom.

    Apologies for the fisheye effect, could only get it all to fit in panoramic mode on my phone.

    Tandem trike frame:

    24 tubes, 35 braze-ons, 35 fillet joints.

    Magnificent tadpole, must of taking some time – I’m imagining an imposing head badge. 🙂

    Spent all of Saturday just filing the head tube fillets and adding cable guides – it has been quite a job, but off to paint next week at last 😉

    Fantastic! Is your shop the kind where I could pop in and say hello? Love unusual bike bits and bobs.

    Extra headtubes for Somafunk’s bike? When one snaps off just move down to the next, like an exacto knife.

    Ben, where do you get your frames painted?.

    I made a thing….

    Great Tandem Trike there Ben. Did you know that nobody has yet set a record time for Lands End To John O Groats on a Tandem Trike (Women, or mixed)?? http://www.rra.org.uk/

    Ben. I don’t get it. How does it steer? (not for a second suggesting this is an oversight on your part, I am just being ignorant!)

    My guess is the bars will go in the centre pillar and then have linkages to the two wheels in the outer pillars.

    bencooper

    Yup, three headsets in a line. Two outer ones take normal forks (he wants to try suspension forks), centre one has the bars. Then tie rods with rose joints connect the centre stem to little stubs on the side forks. Angles will be tweaked to tune the Ackerman effect (wheels need to all turn around a common centre).

    It’s very similar to how recumbent trike steering works.

    The cool bit is it’s going to have a big rack across the front of the frame, to carry tent, sleeping bags etc.

    Just made a low loader wheelbarrow for the Singletraction trail builders
    for moving heavy boulders

    Is that the rationale for it being a trike? – for load carrying capacity? or is it for a rider with balance problems?

    That is a brilliant wheelbarrow!

    Is that the rationale for it being a trike? – for load carrying capacity? or is it for a rider with balance problems?

    It’s for (in)famous Glasgow cyclist Dr Guthrie – he likes tricycles, but he breaks the back axles regularly on his Longstaff trikes. Plus, this way he can have a Rohloff without any complicated gearing setup.

    Anyhow, in a break between building bikes, I made a book:

    😉

    Taken as I was bottling the latest batch. Turned in to a really nice, hoppy and clean session beer. Reckon it’s around 3.5% or so, but lots of flavour.

    Crushed crystal malt and Goldings hops, by the way. .

    Ben, just had a look at the preview of your book. Good stuff!

    I used to work in paper mills before the industry died on its arse. 🙁

    The last thing I made was a very simple jig to make different sized circle templates with for use in our furniture classes. I also made a little video while doing it… 🙂

    [video]http://vimeo.com/85999759[/video]

    inspired by bencooper and porter-jamie: me and a friend did a spot of frame-modification.

    Shortened and lowered the bike I use for polo – welded on some home-made dropouts and fitted some new seatstays.

    Oh, and some details:

    It now has 40mm bb drop and a 360mm(14.2″) rear end. That’s 2mm clearance from tyre to the seat-tube with 26 x 1.5″ slick tyres when the wheel’s slammed. Handcut track-ends with a 50mm slot and seatstays scavenged from an old trek. Still needs tidied up (top tangs need filed up to the weld) then it’s going to paint.

    Super whippy to ride: 74 degree hta, 10mm rake fork, low BB and that tiny rear-end. loving it.

    excuse the rust, first ride was in the rain and not had a chance to repaint it yet.

    cripes! I bet that turns fast.

    Those wardrobes from a page or so back. Finished now bar a lick of paint. Sliding doors to follow when her ladyship decides what finish she wants. Quite chuffed with it, never really made anything like this before.

    A f****** mess.

    I know that feeling bn. We went through the mess phase a couple of months back, took us a while to get sorted as I couldn’t get much time off work but we start moving in on Monday. Definitely all worth it in the end.

    After a disaster with the down tube, I had to chop off half the head tube / down tube lug and fillet braze it on. It looks like the downtube is held on with chewing gum!!
    Painted with rattle cans, it looks OK, but I dont expect it too last…

    (I also made the jig!)
