It rides really well, made out of 4061 tubing with tool steel bearing holders (EN20 I think) It’s quite tough too. I even angled the bearing holders to take the impact of riding over bumps better, that’s the theory anyway
If anyone is interested I will have the jigs for a while (There’s another design about to be made), I have plenty of material and will be able to make a couple more frames I can even bring them to Uk events for you.
1 Material. The frame should you want one will be 4130 and EN20 brazed up and finished in whatever colour or nickel plated,
2 Flex. The frame doesent notably flex at all.
the wishbone rear adds to the tortional stability in the mud
3 Weight. I haven’t weighed it yet however it feels lighter than the nimbus frame I have here - when I weigh it you’ll be the first to know
4 BMW Sadly I am unable to make it due to a pre-arranged family dinner (my girlfriends else I’d cancel) However I shall be around and am more than happy to meet up for a ride sometime
5 Bearing Holders - I am going to build a trials version of this frame with a grippy bearing holder in case you miss the pedals. The bearings haven’t moved yet any impact is driving the bearings harder into the middle of the holder, I am running a differen
t angle to the hunter
6 The size of the bearings - this one holds the suze bearings but seeing as I’ll be making any more I can alter the holder size
6 Name - The frame is One Wheel Only cycles frame - called Blizzard
7 Price - If I make any more it’ll have to be about £100 which is to cover costs etc - still cheaper than a hunter at $350.
I can take credit cards using the machine at dad’s engineering company and post them to wherever so if you are seriously interested please e-mail me and we’ll work out a deal
Please don’t hesitate to ask any more questions
I have been for a couple of rides so far and had no problems what so ever but if anything happens I’ll let you know
