Re: Basket Cases

Would've been a lot easier to do it in Photoshop. (Or maybe you did!) :wink: Jools, Greg is resourceful, imaginative, tricky, and a man of many talents. He doesn't need to resort to photoshop to play with us. Greg, I don't have a light in my shed, but now that you've shed some light I have to say t...

Re: Basket Cases

Of course, not everyone got their pride and joy as a basket of bits, and notwithstanding the fact that I'm sure there are those that think the owner of mine is a basket case, may I also suggest that for those who didn't get theirs as a basket case, then perhaps: "Something old (obviously), with...

Re: Spoke Stress

......So now for an update: .........Here is the final result of my mission and yes I have learnt Something! ...... The picture explains so much - you have long spokes, medium spokes, short spokes, are there any two spokes the same size? Could you have possibly found a less easy project? Greg, it i...

Re: Basket Cases

....... but I just want to check that the mounts should be 99mm or 100mm apart. Anyone got a bare frame they could confirm? ........

Re: Basket Cases

I don't know the origins of the name, and a quick google search only leads to all manner of theories and myths, but nothing I'd want to quote.

Re: Basket Cases

There is not much room for mushrooms left in my normally empty mind. Was it something Alice would have eaten? I've sent a PM to Greg. Levitating bikes is like something from a horror movie. I have some memories of a song about the six o'clock news called "Horror Movies". Would the singers ...

Re: a friend's TY250A
