Beginning the Frame
We've been busy for the past few weekends building the kinetic sculpture. Most of the drivetrain parts arrived so we could start seeing how that stuff fits together. I now have lots of sprockets and bearings to play with.
We also picked up 120' of 1 1/2" chromoly tubing for building the frame. We started welding together the beginnings of the bike frame. Now that things are starting to come together it's easy to imagine how awesome this thing is going to be. We're definitely getting excited!
You can read more at my blog.
We're now in the last few days of the kickstarter campaign. Thanks to your generous support, we've been funded for a while now. But, we have plenty more things to purchase. You can still help us out by sharing a link to this campaign on Facebook or whatever works for you. Thank you all so much for the help! We can't wait to get this thing on the road.
