Bob Stuelke (a new attendee who heard about our meetings from some members he encountered on rides and at the Edina Fourth of July parade) showed the drum brake SRAM hub he plans to put on the front of a tadpole trike that he built twenty years ago.

He hopes to update and ride it again after many years in storage. He will drill the hubs out for a stout, single-sided axle (though Dave says there are also replacement bearings available that mate with a 12 mm axle without any drilling), then build up new wheels with them. The trike uses 24 and 27 inch wheels now, so it is a BIG trike. It's also a leaner, so there was a lot of interest in seeing it at a future meeting.
