Very sweet bike Olaf - Congratulations!
Thanks Jürgen. Glad you like it!
And it seems to ride like hell :-)
Monty is like an old English sportscar. Sporty but not fast. You might
call it a python slowracer. It invites to tight cornering limited only
by the fact that the feet goes into the ground. I should have raised
the bb 10 cm more ...
The pivot fastening mechanism is ingenious.
Do you think the bolts are strong enough, or
would you improve sth if you build it another
Dirk and I got the same idea on the same time. I had the idea of using
a bb but didn't know how to tighten it to avoide play. Dirk met a
friend in Belgium who had kept the crank bolts and used them for
tightening. So there was the solution. This means there is a minimum of
load on the bolts, all the stress is directed in the steel plates of
the pivot fork. So far this works well. And if the bearings in the bb
goes kaputt I insert a new bb cartridge.
But if you think this is the smallest python you
are wrong - see attachment.
Yuk, I'm not sure I like the living pythons so well. When renting a hut
on Tioman island outside the coast of Malaysia we had a python for room
mate and I didn't sleep very well those nights.
Wish you a great time with your Monty and a long
Same to you (German summers are almost as good as swedish ;–)
But I must confess I am already collecting ideas of improvement so I
guess I will spend some summertime in the blazing light of the MAG
PS: I will post the airbike folding seat pictures soon.
