Changed line 10 from:

The outrigger roller is 3D printed in PLA and the front roller is the spool from a roll of #D filament - which happens to be the exact width of rails in New Zealand (66mm).

I've wanted a rail bike ever since I saw one in Bicycing! magazine back in the late 1980's. And now - I've finally jumped in and actually started making one.

Changed line 8 from:

So far I've 3D printed a bunch of joints to connect rollers and some aluminium tubing for the outrigger - but they keep break as soon as I set it up on actual rails. Currently I'm printing the joints in PLA which is the only material my printer will handle. I expect I'll have to try ABS or nylon to get something let brittle. PLA is fine for the prototyping stage though.

Let's see if this'll work - 22 April 2017

I've wanted a rail bike ever since I saw one in Bicycing! magazine back in the late 1980's. And now - I've finally jumped in and actually started making one.

So far I've 3D printed a bunch of joints to connect rollers and some aluminium tubing for the outrigger - but they keep break as soon as I set it up on actual rails. Currently I'm printing the joints in PLA which is the only material my printer will handle. I expect I'll have to try ABS or nylon to get something let brittle. PLA is fine for the prototyping stage though.

I'll post more once I get something that doesn't fall apart before I even sit on the bike.
