Monster Bikes Week 5 – one week left!

April 27th, 2007

So this week, the crew came back from their vacation and we got the front seat and pedals together.

First the seat: here’s Adam demonstrating its use to Nathan:

The pedals were tough; trying to get them located so that they were the right orientation to the seat, and also have a straight chain line down to the axle. We had planned to run the chains to the same cranks that actually power the rear wheels, but we’re going to have to weld additional chainrings to the axle. that’s ok tho. It really should work… right?

Here’s Sean about to weld one of the cranks in place:

And here’s the crew with the cranks in place:

Next week: attach the steering seat! finish the drivetrain! ride off into the sunset!
