Re: the build of my version of a Crabbuggy

After some testruns i noticed too many times that I couldn't brace myself enough. So I tore it a part and cut the roll bar off. Lowerd the sidebars and made another roll bar which is higher, wider and much more steep. The re-bar is just for temporary fix, when I found the right angle for the rollbar...

Crabbing in 8bft

A testrun in 8 Bft is not ideal, but i wanted to try the two rotating actioncam's anyway unfortunatly the kite, a PKD Joy 2m2 snowkite got damaged in the 1st run. A bigger kite was too risky because it was very gusty. not much footage to edit but just enough for a movie. better luck next time.. :D h...

Re: the build of my version of a Crabbuggy

@Pat: ofcourse a downwind run is the safest. But changing direction and looping to make speed is also much fun but with a risk. The Crab is safer when driving max downwind but when you want to go fast you go big. And the high wind back run to where you started is the most risk and a bit more than a ...

Re: the build of my version of a Crabbuggy

the 4th time out is a fact:
@ Brouwersdam Beach NL last saturday
with perfect conditions to try the new seat.
and it was well worth it.!!
it feels more safe so picking up speed is now the goal.

hope you enjoy the video.

Re: the build of my version of a Crabbuggy

started on the new footboard. found a cool silouet of a Crab, cutted it out and drwaed it on hard 3-ply wood, then used a handsaw to cut it out. glued it on the board, sanded it and the first layer of paint is a fact. in reality you see the 3-D effect much more than the photo. template glued the cut...

Re: the build of my version of a Crabbuggy

the ride after the change of the board wich is now at about ratio 0.85 (board <> wheel> is almost perfect. the handling is great and i think that speed (when i get the oppertunity) will not be an issue. it feels right, safe and emergency braking was not a problem and wasn't scared of an eject. i was...
