foot clearanceThis study tracks the path of Carolines foot to make sure that it has clearance throughout its range of motion. In particular I wanted to make sure that there was plenty of clearance with the ground. I was concerned that there might not be enough space to include a safety strap under her pedals.

I modeled Carolines feet, because with shoes they are bigger than Reid’s

Here are some more images showing the position of the bottom bracket. including the clamp to attach it to the main frame.

I have to go back to Palm springs tomorrow. Once you guys take a look at this we could talk some time tomorrow. I will be driving back around 4 California time……. I would be available in the car, or if that is not convenient then I could make time earlier in the day.

At this point we are entering the detailed design phase. So we need to make sure that we are happy with the seating geometry so far and overall frame style.
