After I got over the fact that it looks like a bike, I started to take a more critical look at how it was actually shaping up. As it turned out there was a much larger gap between the rear wheel and the frame than i had anticipated. I think this was because when I first set the geometry I was going to use track style drop outs as I had on the Plycycle Mk1. But I changed to vertical drop outs, and although the geometry lines are the same, the place in which the wheel sits is set, and it is quite far back. I hadn't appreciated how much difference this would make. Not to worry though, it is a wooden frame and it is simple to shorten the stays, but this changes the angles of the rear triangle. I couldn't change the bottom stay fixing as it is surrounded by the main frame, however the top stay junction is fairly simple. So I set about the fix and an hour later it was done. See the before and after pics below.
Before fix. Large wheel gap.
After fix. Wheel closer in.
I also notice now that the angle that I had placed the forks on is not great. They are just placed on, but along the pencil line I had thought would be best. I think that the problem is the opposite to the rear wheel. I think that the front wheel needs to come forward, away from the frame a tad. I will have to look at that properly when I have the head tube made and ready to fit.
Putting a temp wheel in made me realize that it will be much more critical getting the rear drop outs in the correct place now that i am using vertical rather than track style. With track style there is a bit of wiggle room when bolting the wheel in as you can slide the wheel left and right a tiny bit to get a good alignment. However with the vertical drop outs the wheel is set, one position only. I think I will need to make a jig fot the final gluing.
