atomBLASTER front wheel drive bike plans

I posted this earlier in the Recumbents forum, but I figure someone here may also be interested in this.

For the past 6 months I have designed and built different variants of my "moving bottom bracket" front wheel drive lowracer recumbent design. During this time, I have been documenting this journey through drawings, pictures, and work instructions. I have attempted to be very thorough. The result is a 50 page document that I have made available on my website.

=======================================
The response from people on this board has been fantastic! I fielded a bunch of questions, and even sent out a couple sets of plans. I welcome any/all questions or comments about the design; all input is good. I can't wait to see pictures of some of the bikes people will build based on this design!

I feel I should mention that this bike can be built as a 20" lowracer, or the "in vogue" dual 26" version, and I have also added an appendix with instructions on how to create a frame that can be disassembled for travel purposes.
