Default Re: rear suspension

We do what we do...and then learn!!lol..the bike I call 'orange crate' I started with a rear24 triangle and head tube then added top tube and down tube. The down tube I stopped about 7" from bb then took 2angle iron and sandwitched a piece of down tube and welded to the seat tube about 8" up from bb,angled to short down tube so it became the mm for the vertical pred79. That worked,just other misses caused me to scrap it and try this build. I finding that the frrewheel crank with the freehub cassette is too many freewheels. There's no engine breaking and a lot of lagging chain catch up when your on and off the gas. Soooo..not happy..gotta redo the drive.
