I can't wait to see how this turns out. Are you sewing together a couple of Larrys? What are you doing about a frame?

The plan is to sew together a couple Origin8 Devist8ers and probably make the frame out of square steel tubing (or whatever is laying around when I get around t it)

nothing about this thing is going to be light, hence the name change.


Someone over at the mtbr forum suggested I make a fat Penny Farthing, needless to say I am considering it. (thinking trials wheel for the back)

Eric, that would be awesome! A fat penny with your monster tyre on the front and a 19" trials on the back would be sweet, freak bike style! Looking forward to watching your progress.

One day i'd like to build a 36"/16" mini penny in a design similar to my 29"/12", but I think a full size penny is on the cards first though....so many toys!

brake mount & polymorph


This is a brake mount made from the adapted section of a redundant projector mounting extrusion.
The lever end is 'polymorph' a plastic that comes in pellet form and softens in hot water to a mouldable mass which then sets hard. Any shape you like

How well does polymorph work? Always wanted to try making a spooner from it.

This is my first try but it feels OK
Once it’s on you are stuck with the shape you have moulded. The curve and the relief on the underside of the lever hold it in one plane. The feel is soft and waxy so you might want more grip.
Need to cut it off once set and not remouldable. (I haven’t tried it in the blender yet.)

Marco,

Where did you get that hub? Inbound 125mm Nimbus, early release 100mm Nimbus, or a QuAx?

I'm getting 29 and 29 wheels with disc hubs, should be here in a week or so...

pedals: Dartmoor Fever (Alu CNC, weights 375g/pair, grippy as hell)
tire: Conti RubberQueen 2.4
cranks: Tensile 140mm
brake: Shimano SLX + MountainUni Adapter (very close fitting, but it works )
frame: KH 26
seatclamp: Exceed
seat: Axel base KH Freeride
