The Rear Triangle

Now it's time to cannibalize the mountain bike with a suspended rear triangle we purchased from Walmart for less than eighty bucks. That's one donor we didn't find on Craiglist (I could do an article on why bikes via Craigslist ain't worth the time). We'll also harvest other parts- it was money well spent.

Here's the bike:

The triangle lies naked with the other wheels.

We've attached the suspended rear triangle to the new main boom of the trike. Previously a bottom bracket was attached to the square bar that comprises the boom.

One is careful to insure the triangle is parallel with the main boom.

That's all for now!
