    Ya thank you fairracing31
    This is how I got started in this forum in the first place I saw a need and made a video and now they are seen around the world my only hope is that it helps a few people. I believe that this measurements will work for the Grubee skyhawk stage III also.

    I forgot one thing the bottom of the template must be higher than the bicycle crank and the 4G mounting plate is adjustable from 8" to 9" but if you adjust the plate to the 9" you still have to have 9" 1/2 to the top of the template to still have clearance

    actually, i don't post any pics anywhere... I'm not FBI-paranoid, I just don't own the required camera... lol It's a big, old, 12-speed Giant Chinook (sp?) 26-inch mountain bike. The bottom bracket to the top tube is like 21+ inches on the INSIDE measurement. Did I mention that It's really big? I have to ride with the seat ALL OF THE WAY down, and I'm like 5 foot 10...

    Just one thing about that bike as a choice is if you can find one you would be doing your self a great favor by getting a front shock of some kind

    Yeah, I got ridiculous parts like that all over my yard, shed, basement, etc... But my frame is the identical to that one, but much larger frame size. I can actually tell substantial difference just by looking at it.

    So here it is, cuz I got a camera the other day... I would post pics of like 50-some of my bikes and frames I have waded through to find what I wanted, but I'm way too lazy to wait for that size upload...

    [​IMG]

    Here's a link... http://www.imagecross.com/11/image-hosting-view-30.php?id=7598IM000134.JPG

    The pic doesn't seem to work right... I'm probably doin something wrong.

    yeah, it's a monster for sure... But i love that it's got regular sized steel tubing. Oversized aluminum is not something I'm willing to mess around making mounts for.

    If I fall hard enough in love with the whole mb thing, The Schwinn OCC in the background will be getting either a morini setup, or a legitemate conversion using a smaller atv engine with a 3 speed gearbox... But that's just a dream for now.
