    i've seen something commercially available, and i know someone here will reply with info...

    after finally seeing what i actually look like on the bike, i don't see any way to be satisfied as finished.

    i need to stretch the back of the bike out at least a foot.

    i sure could make use of a bolt-on-able rear-stay/dropout extension.

    bucks are an issue, but if there's a chance of a trade, i have a really nice P4-2.6GHz / Asus P4G8X / 64M GeForce combo that needs a good home. that's cpu, board, & video only.

    well, let's say i stripped the frame, took good pictures, & gave you accurate measurements...could it be done remotely?

    i'd surely be able to come across with more than a 12pk :)

    oh, 'kronic...the "magic seat" is soooo smooth, i don't know why i ever bothered with a sissybar :p :p

    you know why dont you look into shipping her out to me and we can make just about anything my shipping zip is 92225...or better yet let me do some digging and see if I can find you a frame and strech it here and ship it to you that way you only pay shipping 1way just tell me what type of bottom drop out or size of your crank and the size of neck tube so your forks and crank will fit when you get it
    P.S. the only thing I have right now is a Coloi aluminum mtb frame with a suntour frount shock and shamono derailerbut I dont have access to a tig welder as of yet......

    yes, but a bit simpler still...i'm doing my best to come up with a decent diagram, stay tuned.

    meantime, you may all amuse yourselves with this:

    early on, i almost cut a deal for a frame that uses my existing hardware, to save cost. an illness put the kabosh on that (btw-i'm hoping things are going well, get in touch) but i'd still love to build a classic cruiser frame...size: augie. here's what we were working on at the time.

    original

    some concepts, keeping the mounts in a conventional position for reliability
    please note: the seat is properly attached to avoid "confusion"

    is that setup from Burley ?
    looks pretty well engineered
    you might need a longer seat haha or maybe a set-back seat post

    yeah, i'd still do the banana seat/sissybar thing except i wouldn't be perched out over the rear wheel like i am now.

    i was gonna buy a stretch from the get-go, but no dice...the crank-to-seat "inseam" distance is still too short for me, hence the only-option choice of a tall frame.

    ok ,can you get more photos of that add-on kit? if I get more photos of it I might be able to build it. it does look pretty cool to mount a a nice wide seat too and ride lower in the saddle
     
  17. gone_fishin

    gone_fishin Guest

    yes, i'll be properly seated, for once. i'll look around for more pics...i'm working on a blend of that kit & your idea of adding the whole back of another frame.

    Augidog,

    This is an invitation to come down to the iRide Customs shop in Oregon. If you want to, I am offering to modify your frame for CHEAP! All you have to do is drive down to the shop in Jefferson Oregon.

    I sure you've seen some of my work and I'm sure we could come up with something.
