My Padding was going to be scotch bright pads which I had but I found some closed cell packing foam 1/2" thick that I used.

Re: Street Skinny Typhoon

I was just going to a slightly tighter bend to clear my crank. This might work if the cable sheath bends tighter than the noodle.

Re: Street Skinny Typhoon

Did a little more thinking and welding on the brake. Why not for either foot? also modded a generator taillight to a self contained flaser light with the guts from a dumpster score Sigma taillight with a broken lense don't know what color to paint the light mount. Also pedal height check mockup seems like it will be ok.

Re: Street Skinny Typhoon

Skipton the pedal loop extends through the frame to the right not quite as much as it sticks out the left for no particular reason the pedal looked too lopsided with it projecting the same distance from the frame. Travel? havent done that yet. Rubber stop built into the loop for frame stop so I dont break the cable or strech it.
