Can't remember his screen name off the top of my head, but Peter posts on here occasionally. Last I recall, he had no problems at all with this design. Very cool!
that's UnoPete's bike. I rode with him at last years' Bikes n Beers ride in the OC. Maybe it was '02? Cool bike and the design seems to be holding up.

got your ears on Pete?

The bike is pretty still. Not much flex. I'd do a few things different next time but the design is solid. I made the fillets a little too small so I'm a little nervous about some of them but the adjustment method works fine. I just finished a new frame last month that is pretty radical but haven't posted pictures yet. I'm over in Japan for 6 months and won't be able to build it up for a couple of months.

I remember when you first built that frame, it is quite a nifty design. Good to hear that it is holding up nicely. I really like its ability to break down for travel. Do you think the design might be refined and brought to market?

AAA+++ for creativity.....

Great use of the mind. Looks very nice and you should be proud to have something that is so unique. One Off.

All the best in the future. Why are you in Japan? Work?

Still haven't traveled with it but I did take apart once and forced it into an airline legal box to see if it would fit. The front fork was the toughest part to get into the box. I did get it to fit though.

Thanks. Work brought me to Japan. I'm in Tokyo so riding is hoping on a Surly Cross Check and weaving in and out of traffic, sprinting out of lights, and hopping on and off the sidewalk. It's really pretty flat in the city. Outside the city there are some trails but that only works on weekends. City riding is more interesting that straight road riding but it's not at all like riding on the trails. You make do with what you have.

i had a very similar idea

but with a bit different execution.
I thought it was pretty unique so was waiting till i finished modeling it on SolidEdge before i showed it around.
i hopefully will be making a prototype once i finish my Mech Eng Degree in a couple of months.
I'll organise a screen grab of it.
