yes, everything is remix ()
Yep…I mentioned at least one of those a couple years ago.
Here is one more to throw in the mix.
Nice a simple design. I built a plywood and LVL (laminated veneer lumber) bike in 2006. My design is not tops but the concept is much different. http://ratrodbikes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=11557&p=116151&hilit=woodie#p116151
Why would he go to the trouble of changing it as he did to make it less attractive? At a glance his design is more practical.
If you are referring to the shape of the two ply pieces….yes, his design is probably more practical. I’d love to ride it and feel how the frame flexes. It looks like a very well built prototype.
hi have you any more photos of your bike i’d love to see them if you have yours jack
Yours is more elegant and his seatpost-to-top-plank junction is problematic. Now please stop CADding and make one;)
Yes, I should make one…just need to find the time. I guess that is why the design has been sitting in a folder for years.
2008 is not 5 or 6 years ago
Ha, ha! 2008 is when I posted the sketches and did the rendering. The original sketches were drawn quite a bit prior to that; probably around 2005 or 2006.
In my opinion, this is just a coincidence. Your design, James, is indeed much more refined and elegant.
Bicicleta é um transporte ecológico, seja qual for o seu design
Both designs look really cool. Would look forward to both bikes getting beyond the prototype stage.
Fishing for praise, for somthing you dident bother finishing…. Take the high road…. Your design is great… But imagine the amount of work he put in to actually make it work… Just look at the dementions of the plywood etc.
I was not fishing for praise at all. The post was just my initial reaction to seeing a very similar design to one I had posted previously. As I wrote in my update though, I am glad to see that he made a working prototype (an nice one at that) and I acknowledged that the similarity between the two designs could very well be a complete coincidence.
i have a question,if your weight up to 100kg,
can it support for that?
