Spent the last month redesigning the frame and swingarm to use round tubing. After completing the initial design using rectangular aluminum tubing I felt the design would require too many small components to build. The round tubing also allows a better glue bond as the clearance between mating parts is more easily controlled than it would be in a rectangular design. The following pictures illustrate the final design – analysis of the main components is the next step.
