Hi everybody, Another new guy.
I'm in Montreal Quebec, Canada. Building a recumbent from scratch. So far we got 52" wheel base, 4 gears that work, 26" rear wheel and 16" front wheel, under seat steering and less than 100kms. My uncle built it. He called me for a consult, and that was it, bitten by the Bent Bug. A pic is in the camera and I'll post them as they come. Putting Engineering Changes on every day. It is still heavy 41~47 pounds. But is see lots of weight that can be cut off. Where is my torch.
Soon as I get the problems organized I will be calling for your advice.
Gravity Is Yer Friend
Heck, 47lbs? Give it a go at a downhill run. Should make for some good photo ops.
Welcom to the forums.
Welcome to the forum John
There must be other recumbents here but I don't believe Iv'e seen any posts yet. Love to try one out( I just love any excuse for lying down when training)
47Ibs John? thats some serious metal you have there. Unless thats a tandem sounds like a need for `slash n burn slash n burn'
