Hi Brendan,

thanks, but how would you achieve the alignment of the hips with the steering axis? That is necessary to avoid pedal/steering interference (psi).

Regards,
Jürgen.

Hi,

After reading my post below, I realized I should clarify how I
thought positive trail can be achieved - the steering pivot can now
be placed within the hubless wheel, allowing steering trail to be set
positive.

Regards,

Brendan

My first post after following the python list for a few years!

I came across the following hubless wheel design idea online and
immediately thought that its use may allow a python with positive
trail to be built. How would a positive trail python handle? The
addition of positive trail may cause a stronger self centering
effect upon steering!
