Thanks! It’s getting there!
Seatpost, chopped the top off, bobike clamped onto the post, stoker stem post clamped below that!
Sounds like a good way of carrying a child while getting her used to the feeling of riding as a stoker.
Yeah, shes 2 next month so not ready for a normal saddle and pedalling just yet!
excellent progress .. you rate the Bobike seat?
OJ is just about out of it now, 2 years old, its been great, worked on the brompton perfectly too
Hey man, I've thought of this a thousand times and never commented but all the power to you for building up a bike like this for your wife and kiddo, so so awesome. I just showed some pics to my 3 year old and she likes it too and obviously wants one now. Good job on being a rad dad and husband.
thanks! best thing is i get to ride it too! Just like the Brompton Electric for my wife... ;)
It’s somewhat complete.
Need to sort;
Gear set up.
No fluid in rear brake
Front rack - have basket and bag though
Move and sort wiring for front light - onto rack.
Front guard and flap on, went 65mm because there’s room
Stoker bar and stem swap
Need to do a front mech swap, rebelled rear brake, tubeless sealant in the tubes, rear guard and light, parking brake
Fitted rear guard and swapped the mech! Running nicer now.
Going to fit some half moon washers to 2 of the bridge mounts to make it a little neater.
Added purple cable ends to keep the mrs happy.
Will photo and ride tomorrow!
Hopefully pizza rack arrives soon...
Shred to the park!
Did take the tandem off road, lots of fun, kiddo loved it, had to lift onto these and for 50-100m stretches about 7 times, well funn
So good! Even managed to get some skids!
Pizza rack arrived but no good! Doesn’t quite line up.
Went in hard and got a Surly Nice...
Surly Nice on, splendid.
