Joints attached to upper frame
All bolts were loosened and the joint was spun 180º so the upper frame would point up more than before. Clearance between the pedals and wheel was increased, hopefully enough to clear feet from the wheel.
Joints attached upside-down for elevation
Hardware wasn’t aligned properly so the upper frame was not pointed correctly. Washers had to be added to hold the frames parallel. The washers helped but added distance between the bike frames. This wasn’t a problem for leg clearance.
Upper frame not parallel to lower frame
Distance between the bike frames lead to a small problem with the short threaded rods being used. They were too short to reach between the fastening hardware on each side. This can be quickly solved with long threaded rods or, most likely, trimmed bolts.
Threaded rod too short
- Permanently attach upper frame
- Remove cranks from lower bike
- Run chain between cranks and wheel
- Construct idler sprocket
- Strip pink paint
