Second personal project(Perpetualmotion - the bike)
« on: September 30, 2011, 04:40:42 AM »
With my last project complete and winter around the corner, thoughts turn to my next project.

But here's the rub, it's a bike.

Just because I'm using leftover parts from a robot project doesn't make it on-topic on a robot forum
, does it?

You won't hear me complaining about ingenious work being put into a non-robot and then being shared...  Pretty much no one posts their projects of any kind here, it seems.  Heck, I posted a robot project of mine here and got zero replies (ya.. go, go Trossen Forums)

Onwards!

Gertlex, guess if nobody looks.

Task:
Make a recumbent tadpole configured bike that plugs into the grid(battery charging) , travels 20miles
on a charge, all seasons, be classed as a bike(street legal) ,fun to ride and build it in one year.

Goal of the task:
Using software(PC based), hardware(leftover phidgits senors,motors, est..)  push the laws of thermal dynamics(not brake)
while getting me to my locale hardware store and back any time of the year.

Budget:
$300.00 per month.
