    Good luck with the trike build. I'm having issues with my axel. Could you post some pics of yours? I would like to see the set up. Thanks.

    Thank you! I had some real progress on final design today! While JATS worked on his metal work, I decided on the front tire, brake design, color scheme, and some other little design elements. So I may not have been able to actual get "hands on" much, I felt today was very productive. Getting very excited to see how everyone is progressing after this weekend! :happy:
