I've been hanging here for a few days. I'm starting to get the itch to build something (although I don't have a stash of parts anymore). I did these truss rods "eons" ago. The green bike was called "Snot Rocket". I tried to match the front rods at the same angle of the rear carrier supports, to make it look symmetrical and balanced. The second bike was called Rats Alt. I wanted to match the downward angle of the rear rods, also for balance and symmetry. Those were made from two Spaceliner rear carriers.
