Default Wing Wheel by Andy (GY)


if you see this, could you let me know if you upgraded your wing wheel design so that its hieght could be adjusted? You posted that you were going to do that back in 2010...

if so, could you post pics of the new design and perhaps describe it a bit.

i'd like to build a wing wheel for ground handling my glider, your design seemed very straight forward, what I could see of it from the pics you posted on the SSA picture gallery...

Hi Mike, we share the same wing. Will take pics for you, but mine is converted unicycle with height adjust, bonded to wing cuffs, easy and cheap ($20usd)

Hi mike, apologise for delay.
The height is already adjustable theough the standard unicycle seat post system, identical to most bikes. The wheel can also rotate 360 degrees or ge locked. The wing cuff was bonded to short tube underneath (seat post), and the unicycle wheel locked under. I did have to grind off the pedal crank assy.
My direct email is " will get detail pics asap.
