    Front suspension; aim, simple and low cost (Ace and Chaser)

    Doodled up a simple suspension setup based on a pair of spare Quik shocks, four little 6mm flat plates, either hand cut or nip into a laser cutting workshop, pushbike 140mm disc brake from EBay and a 10mm through axle

    Drawings available if you fancy a crack

    Nice job, Kev.
    Do you find it sufficiently stable laterally? I am guessing the temporary axle will be replaced by something which pulls up tight to tie the plates together and prevent the whole lot from twisting, especially when the brake is applied.
