New Leaning Delta trike

Postby stevenurseau » Wed Aug 28, 2013 11:33 pm

Hi

As suggested by John Lewis, I'm posting about my new trike. It is based on the ideas of Vi Vuong and my own style recumbent bike. When I had problems on the frame with a wooden bike I had, Vi's videos came to mind and I built this machine. Since building it I've been in contact with Vi Vuong.

So here are a few links, interested to hear your comments.

Thanks Steve. I'll have a good read and get back to you. I've been tempted to try that ever since I saw that one of Vi's.
A bit odd in appearance but it does seem to work and looks pretty easy to do.

Congrats Steve, when I saw Vi's video on youtube I thought it was the best invention I've seen for a long time.
The way it drops gives some more options for tight spots to pick it up and have the width reduced over the height.

Hi

After a few months of having this trike I've managed to do a 200k Audax permanent ride on it and published an online article about it. There is a summary of all the work I did last year on it (plus the new wooden bike I'm riding) at http://modularbikes.blogspot.com.au/201 ... -2013.html .

Best Wishes / Regards
