    one less hummer...HPV's rockon!

    Well since this thread is about alternate bikes, i guess this is where my new bike belongs, as it really is "alternate", who needs a hummer when you have one of these, goes on water, goes on ice, goes everywhere, and all human/pedal powered

    It has a pedal powered propellar for the water sections to, a tandem, sociable, recumbent, amphibious 4 wheeled "alternate" HPV

    (i havent worked out how to post pics yet so sorry about the hyperlink!!

    Cool, I like quads, - how do you set up the aquatic conversion?
    OMNIPOTENS aeterne Deus, qui nos secundum imaginem Tuam plasmasti, et omnia bona, vera, pulchra, praesertim in divina persona Unigeniti Filii Tui Domini nostri Iesu Christi, quaerere iussisti, praesta quaesumus ut, per intercessionem Sancti Isidori, Episcopi et Doctoris, in peregrinationibus per interrete factis et manus oculosque ad quae Tibi sunt placita intendamus et omnes quos convenimus cum caritate ac patientia accipiamus. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

    We have a pedal powered propellar attached, via a gearbox to both our bottom brackets. And 2 inflatable cataraft tubes, which are 18ft long with 600kg of bouyancy. And we will be steering with our handlebars attached to a rudder

    more pics and videos will be posted up on the site soon, so you will be able to see it in operation(hard to picture in your head)

    thanks
