It did look smaller on ebay

New hopes.. Once owned a handcycle.. Did nothing for my legs while almost giving me a heart attack.. Damn harder than they look

Not storage friendly.. Rolled it within 20 minutes of ownership.. Now much wiser to turning circles and speed

Is that some sort of home-built creation?

Looks interesting.

Its the work of a skilled bicycle builder, a similar sized 2 wheel recumbent by the same person shared the same stable

Sadly this one sat for 2 years in the care of a bicycle enthusiast mostly stabled in the garage after the builder got too sick

Quite dusty but mechanicly sound. Needs new tyres, brakes re-tensioned. All the small things

Originally designed to be motor assisted with a mid drive motor on that side plate

Shes quite a beast.. Suprisingly easy to pedal and more unstable at lower speeds than high
6 speed with a mindboggling array of derailers, chain tensioners and chains to final drive on one wheel

Feels more motorbike cruiser than tricycle
With enough storage space for my wheelchair.

The low seat, high handlebars and length has this 37 year old feeling a bit like a kid on an adult bike

Much better than the china built run of the mill tricycle I was eyeing when this popped up

My full Italian stable with the latest addition - just built up the de Rosa frame with full 11 speed Campy Chorus gruppo. I think it is a Neo Pro, but not 100% sure as it looks like they only officially released those in a pearly white. The paint scheme is very similar to the de Rosa Cassanova, but that had internally routed rear brake, a different fork and was built with Columbus Brain tubing. Mine is externally routed rear brake, unicrown fork and labelled with Columbus Genius tubing. Either way, she is a gem to ride.

I give up posting photos on this site.
Flicker is useless and I don't have a twitter acct (or want one) so that's that.

Instagram seems to work OK and i don't think it is going to fall over too soon. Dead easy to use also.

Imgur is my go-to solution for images, makes pic linkage very forum-friendly

Postimage for me is the easiest (for someone that doesn't have or wish to have, facebook, insta, twitter etc). No account, just convert to the public bin and copy the forum link to paste straight in without using the tags.

https://postimages.org/

Its no Tapatalk though!

My new wheels: - Fulcrum Racing Zero Carbon - with kind of unique decals than the originals.

^^ Would be better to remove the url in the pic , so it won't go back to postimage with ads. Only use the img to post it.
ID please? What ID? My seat tube ID is 27.2mm or 31.6mm depending on what bikes I ride today.thanks...

Like that do you mean? Its a shame it doesn't have that option as a hotlink with just the img so figure it works just as well with the url as well?? (I'm lazy - don't want to be editing it - paste and forget is my theory!)

Yep.
I found out when I done it and it was annoying to include cr@p ads when it wasn't months ago.

Before that you can hotlink and forget with no ads but now it's gone downhill with more work to remove the url. I like the old lazy way.

Nup. I can't get it to work from my android phone app :oops:

Edit: I clicked copy link on the photo in the app which came up with a https address. that didn't work when added to the insta shortcut.
So I deleted all the guff and kept just the short code like your link has.
Surely there is an easier way?

Yep. That is what I do. Not that difficult :cry: but I forget to delete all the guff if I haven’t posted recently. Age related issue.

Anyway, we'll see if this works.
Got the mighty Ribble sand blasted to make it more PC when riding with local LBS staff and owners.
None have said anything, but still...
A bit of work with wet and dry, steel wool and aluminium polish and it was done.
