Anyone know a good wheelbuilder?

Which wheel on the trike is the most expensive? Right front with the dynamo hub.

Which wheel has a visible S-bend from the recent transit to Perth? Right front with the dynamo hub. Arrgh!

Did I discover this before or after I finished rebuilding it? After (of course).

You say "trike", and then you say "right front"? Every trike I've ever seen (motorized or just the kid's pedal version) has one wheel in front, two in back; I've never seen the opposite configuration.

Actually many, if not most**, recumbent trikes are in the tadpole (2 front) rather than delta (1 front) configuration.

Here's a very early* image of mine: http://pics.livejournal.com/arcadiagt5/pic/000017x7/g2

*As in it probably dates back 3+ years now - it looks like the original crank set and I swapped those out fairly early on.

**Well, in Australia at least. It took Greenspeed almost twenty years before they introduced the Anura: http://arcadiagt5.livejournal.com/115508.html

Front steering, drive wheel at the rear.

Have you heard about the Sidewinder? Rear steering, front wheel drive?

Just because I like messing with your head. :)

Did I mention that there are lean-steer trikes out there?

I tried one once, freaky doesn't begin to cover it...

Oh and btw are you feeling any better? Leece mentioned on her blog that you had acquired the dreaded lurgy?

Sigh. So that would be the usual good news / bad news routine.

Dare I hope that you're NOT on call for SwanCon?
