Project on hold

The bike cart project is on hold for me for now. I have moved out of Cleveland. I may start working on it again here in Austin, if I can work out the logistics.
If you have any questions about the project at OCBC contact Jim.

  1. Anyone interested in this project is welcome to help move it into production at the Ohio City Bike Co-op, where we have two prototypes, plenty of materials that Bart prepared, and many of his tools which we will take care of for him in his absence.

    Bon Voyage, Bart; send us a postcard!

    • Bart,
      Glad to see you are still at it! We have made some improvements that would be good to post — can you give me admin. status to do that?

      In the meantime, here is a parts list:

      1 large, lugged road frame with European BB (with cups installed) and round tubes; top tube cut just behind headtube lug, seattube cut just below seat lug, and chainstays cut just behind BB
      1 long round tube (could be that frame’s top tube) that is a sliding fit inside or over the frame’s seat tube
      1 very long tube of any diameter
      6 “curvy” (front) brake washers
      6 m6 nylock nuts
      5 m6 bolts long enough to clear #2 tube, washers and nuts
      1 m6 seat q/r long enough to clear frame seattube and its sliding-fit tube, and brake washers
      2 similar (same rise/reach dimensions) steel 1″ quill stems preferably with 2-bolt bar clamps.
      2 similar (same length 1″ steerer tube) bmx forks
      2 similar 20″ bmx front wheels, mounted with good rimstrips, tubes and tires
      1 rear cassette-hub 26″ wheel with axle and freehub removed, radically dished so drive side of hub is as close as possible to flush with rim drive side surface; reasonably true and tensioned
      1 Kevlar bead skinny road tire scrap section at least 10″ long
