[quote=“Jaboney”]Actually, I’ve been turning it over. Very generous of you, and thanks.
I kicked the idea around with a few wiser than I in the ways of wheels, and can’t quite work out how to make it work with a sufficiently large wheel up front. A caster would certainly provide a tight turning radius, but a small, hard wheel would make for rough going over uneven pavement.
Why would I be holding a grudge? Over what?[/quote]
I don’t know. We’ve had our disagreements in the past. I would not be able to remember what it was about because I don’t hold on to these things, and I started a thread in feedback last week about your locking of threads in IP. I thought maybe you were pissed off or holding grudges. After five days without a response to my offer, you still hadn’t acknowledged it and I did not think you were going to.
The wheel I am thinking about is mounted with a rubber tire. It looks similar to the pic I posted above, but much bigger and much smoother on rough surfaces than a regular caster wheel. About as big as the stroller wheel without the tire. But because of the way it would be mounted on the stroller, the front end would end up raised by a couple inches despite having a slightly smaller front wheel. I don’t see a couple inches being a problem.
Here’s a better pic:
It can also be done using the actual stroller wheel, but it would require extending the front end of the stroller to add a bearing and a small fork, and the fork would have to be fabricated. Still can be done for under 1k, methinks. It would probably look better, too. No time now, but maybe I’ll draw a quick pic later to show you what I’m thinking about.
