Hiho guys and gals,....

today i'll enter the competition.... allthough i know i have no chance to win... :)
... i started of with a concept i had done a few weeks ago...

IDEA: (around march)




START: (end of april)
...so i went on the search for a frame which would give me the steel and enough bends of the angles i need :)...
and so i went with a Velor Chopper (a german trademark for cheapest chinese Switchblade copys)
...had some wheels build for a different project which went terribly wrong (the wheels don't fit in the back...and you don't bend brand new 29" MTB-Frames :) ) ... so the wheels where waiting in the basement

...then i made the design for a double springer fork...but ended up using an old double crown fork from china

PRODUCTION PROCESS: 05/05/2013
sooo all the parts went together... :)

....
put in some cranks and some chain...and off i went to the office for a testride... Cranks to long (but i could drive 2mm under the pedal can be enough) and no brakes :)


05/11/2013
...yesterday i welded a fork using the old double crown fork...

...and ran down to my basement to put "something" together...the wheels allthough i LOVE them where changed for some 26" by 3" rims with 3" tires including a BRAKE and some gears (Shimano Nexus 7)

...the planned double springer fork...

...had a roll out a few moments ago... the bike seems to be much lower on the 26"x3" rims then on the 26x2" Rims i used before...and i used 127,5mm cranks now... and used 150mm cranks before... o should have plenty of space under my pedals.... NOPE... WHY???.... because i had not enough air pressure in the tires ... :)



... the frame has to move up a little bit more... seems like i have to weld a little bit more on the fork
...changed the handlebars for something which can take shifter and brake... it will be romoved later and replaced by something cooler... :p

...a few minutes ago... a different frame arrived... an old Boardtracker Frame made by the long gone PimpGarage...
maybe today i will try a mock up with this frame... i'm not sure at the moment if not this will be more the right frame for an "evil" project... :)

Re: Evil V - RRBBO8 - a build from germany...

...tested the frame with asimple mock up of parts from the basement... and its not the direction i want to go... its way too "classic" ... and the frame is a little bit to small for me :) (iam a 192cm tall guy... or 6,3ft)....









... this bike is not gonna end up as my final decission for my RRBBO8 Bike... not even as a spare frame, its to seldom to cut and weld it...

...So iam getting back to the original frame... tomorrow i will relace the rear wheel with a SRAM Spectro 7 instead of the broken Shimano Nexus 7 (stripped the axle :x ) and broke some internals... maybe iam to strong for japanese IGHs? (allthough my alfine in my pugsley keeps up with everything else!)...

seee you tomorrow guys and gals.... yours Tibor
