Hi Dominic,

I like it! And great the advice you give here:
Cleverness is a dangerous design trap. Try to be clever and you'll probably end up taking longer. better is to ask your self questions like "what compromise will make this  easy?" and build the simplest thing which could possibly work, test it, and then improve it.
Can't say I'm always following it though.

At some point you'll need some mudguards at the front wheel --- even on dry roads grit you'll get grit in your face.

hi everyone,

I've just got my python to a (just) ridable prototype stage. it's built from wood, at each step trying to do the least to improve it the most. 

so far I haven't even used glue. 

it's still pretty bad, but improving at each step. 

here is a blog post on it:

cheers. Dominic
