Hi everyone. First, I want to thank the folks who posted their DYI cart designs, which inspired me to do the same. I too was thinking about getting a Pro Angler but I was surprised of the price of the Hobie cart. Buying four tires for my car was cheaper. I went ahead and purchase the 3/4" axle from wheeleez since it fits inside 3/4" PVC pipe without a need for a bushing or reducer. At 28.5" in length, I was going to cut the length but the current design (for 26 cm Foam "Tuff Tire" Wheels) will allow me to still reuse the axle if ever I wanted 30 cm wheels later. Thank goodness PVC is fairly cheap.
I made the mistake of buying Hobie's Post Collar Clamp which is too small for 3/4" PVC. I'm still working on a fix but feel free to post any suggestions. Any input will be greatly appreciated for this work in progress.
Thnx in advance
