I have trouble using the camera on my flip phone! Video blog! Nice idea. I think with this particular build it would be difficult to show and explain with still shots....I be watching.

It appears that the center rim is a little high in a couple spots.
This makes me wonder if it would all be level with tires on, I'll have to see if I have any 1 3/8 tires and tubes.

Digging it. Bet if you inflate the outer tires a little more than the center, you should be fine.

Wondering if you did it with a more standard, 559 iso, 26" rim you might be able to run a single 26x3.0 or so size tire on the three rims. Would need a decent rim strip in there, and I am not sure you will be able to run such a large volume tire between your... wait, your chain and seatstays will be custom anyways... totally understand wanting to use what you have on hand to keep costs down as well.

keep the rubber side down!

I have another idea in mind if the belt drive idea doesn't work.
The three rims were because I thought it would be cool to have to tires with a belt between them, but I have a side drive idea that only requires one rim and tire. That would save me money too, solid tires are $30+ a piece.

I'm not to concerned with using what's on hand, I've been collecting parts for this for a while. Just have to figure out how I want the wheels to be.
