I would like to aquire a piece of land where I can build my own , private half mile oval with eight degrees of banking.
I have studied streamilined recumbent bicycles, and have built prototype electric mopeds.
I feel a half-mile track is necessary as anticipated speeds will be ~55 MPH. Eight degrees of banking should be enough. I want to test new electric mopeds for 5000 miles on my private track, so I can be sure they are safe before letting them loose on public roads.
Fairings are not allowed in UCI racing because they are considered cheating.I don't care.
Why is that piece of plastic called a fairing? It reduces the 55 MPH wind in my face to a fair wind.
I plan on a dirt track, maybe pave it later. It's not for racing, it's for endurance testing of new bikes.
Here's some pics of the prototypes:
I hate to offend anyone, or start an argument over presta vs schraeder, but street legal moped tires have to be at least 2.5 inches in width.
I would welcome any input or suggestions members here on the Track Cycing forum may have.
