    Wow, I didnt know that alluminum ramps would have the capacity for that much weight. What are they rated for, if you had to guess, besides the weight of your truck, and safe operating weight?

    I woud have to guess the capacity around 10 ton (20,000 lbs) per set... but i didn't test them untill they let go, so it's a guess... however my neighbor drove his frontloader up on them after i took my truck down and they didn't move

    Default that green recumbent bike

    Hey Weldnut; those recumnents are exctly what I have been looking for in design for over a year looking on different recumbent bike forums and recumbent manufactures. Your green bike has my eyes sore from looking at it so long, that is exactly what I would want to build it's perfect for me bar none. Production bikes are way overpriced besides not what I like. I have been collecting parts for this project for a long time.
    Do you have any information, specs and measurements for me to exactly copy and build that green bike? Is this is ok with you? A full parts list would be great. This down to the gearing, seat everything if possible? Make it for a recumbent noob to understand and build.
    I have a bad back so the my road bike days are gone. One recumbent I tested had the handle bar under the seat, this was all wrong in the handling department, hated it. Short wheel base is also wrong for me. Is it critical the stearing head angle and dimensions resulting from making an ok to building a great handling bike in the stability department?
    Thanks in advance. PM me or email me please. If this is ok on this forum;
    R90scj@alamedanet.net Thanks and have a safe holiday weekend.

    This is so freakin' cool. I have been trying to figure a way to support both my wood miter saw and my dry cut saw for awhile now. Neat idea. Too bad I really don't have the space...

    Aren't the front casters a little undercapacity for all the weight? Otherwise, super-nice job. It just needs some blue paint!
