My homemade Mountainboard

Just some photos of it...(click on thumbnails)

It's just another hancrafted MTB, but I truly (and unmodestly) believe she's a beauty. See by yourselves!

 

 

As a matter of fact the idea came firstly from the noSno design (www.nosno.com). You'll hardly find anything simpler and easier to build!

It was finished after only one afternoon at work, provided that my friend Nicolas Prosperi generously gave me the board (surplus from a previous project).

 

First I played a little with a 3D CAD software (Rhino) to make plans.

Download plans!(Autocad .DWG format)

           And renderings.
Then put hands to work, and the final product is...            
Surely you'll want some details on the almost-Nosno steering system.            

 

                    Lastly, run it very fast!     

 

Easy steering, absolutely silent running, just 7 Kg, I'm very happy with this MTB.
