You forgot that studded shoes would be great for icy conditions too.
Really enjoyed the video, brilliant idea, I'd be happy to try something like that out if it were available on the market but maybe more for mountain biking than for trials, I have the feeling the shoe might not grip as well when bailing?
Moved it back into the guest room as I pulled the engine to send the big end to the UK to to have a new conrod and oversised bearings. Found my conrod which I thouth I was sending as exchange lying under some bubble wrap after I sent the parcel..
Should receive carb spares coming tomorrow and more spares by the end of the week.
Don't judge the bar angle
It's fixed with cableties and string, can't get those BSC screws easily over here.
Bit miffed as I drove 400km last weekend to fetch a speedo drive that *should* be correct. Rudge used gears that no one else seems to have used (1:75 ratio, 8-14 cogs) and the chap selling it thought it's correct. Also found a brake pedal in a box which he gave me for £15.
Back home I took the speedo drive apart and realised that it had the easy to find 1:1.5 ratio. I luckily hadn't paid yet and told him I'm not ready to pay the price he asked for when I can get a housing off ebay for £80 or something.
Now he wants both items back and I did the drive there for nothing at all.
Looking into having gears made now, but I've got no clue about anything. A friend of mine could make CAD files but I'm unsure about two things: Material and price. 45° helicals, original they're hardened steel but I'm wondering if nylon gears on a steel spindle would be a suitable replacement? There'd be multiple people interested in one as the 1:75 ratio seems so rare.
Had another play and got it to 3x, spokes are now 190 and 188 but will obviously give a stiffer wheel
Reckon I'll get away with this level of spoke/flange interface at the hub? Obviously I will be prebending the outside spokes inwards as I lace it.
