Show off your Ride

Postby Aushiker » Sun Dec 15, 2013 11:27 pm

Another forums have a, post a photo of your recumenbent so why not us as well? So if you think it is a good idea please do post a photo or three of your recumbents ...

To get things rolling, here are mine. A LoGo Lightning P-38 and a Bacchetta Giro 20 ATT.

Nice Duck - how fast do you go in racing mode?

I thought I would post my steed here as well. Not really a recumbent, but I have nowhere else to post it really and figure recumbenteers will at least understand the bike.

Image

It's a RANS Sequoia, I think the only one in Australia, at least I can't find anyone with one and no dealer has ever sold them that I can find. Brought in the frame Christmas last year and built it up from there. No back rest, but I sit pretty much bolt upright on what is really very much the bottom seat off the RANS recumbents. Very comfortable.

On a straight with favourable traffic conditions, and depending on rider strength, we can exceed 60 km/h. However the average is more like around 45 km/h.

I'll post pics when I take some nice ones, though I think I might have picked up the ugliest bent around... an old bikeE. My first attempt to put my best feet forward.

Here she is:

An old piccy. Both trikes (Greenspeed) have had new PV panels fitted and the red one now has a fairing.

That bike-E is very interesting. Yes, sort of ugly, but also very intriguing. It looks heavy. Is it?

Surprisingly light. I haven't weighed it but according to the spec sheet it's a shade under 13kg. Seems to be about right.

Something I'm surprised about was that it was bought at a mainstream normal bike shop - from the place that's currently Pushys at Fyshwick. I wonder if Flying Furniture ever stocked them...

I recently had the time and some sacrificial bikes so i borrowed some dimensions from a friends bacchetta and welded up my own take on a recumbent bike.
http://s1146.photobucket.com/user/pauld ... 8.jpg.html
the seat is a glass/carbon one i made in a simple mold ,then stiffened with some poleurathane foam ribs and a bit more glass. the seat could be seriously lighter in carbon /epoxy. chassis is a high tensile diamond drilling section known as LTK60. :) very strong but onlt 2mm wall. forks are ex MTB rear set upis 2xbackstays from MTB rear suspension. cranks are /chainrings are MTB 3 speed. . the bike was going to be 26" set up but i chopped all the brakes off and converted to 700x23. :D the bike feels so much more responsive with the lighter wheelset. rear is 7 speed(early 1990's) wheels and brakes came from the last of the Centurion roadbikes.. it had shimano 105 hubs on alexrim rear and french wolber front :D
handlebars/were custom built from a MTB and an indi500. :o changers are MTB diore for the rear and a little friction changer for the front. derailleur unit came off an avanti Black Thunder :lol:
total cost was $80 due to the paint getting a clearcoat. and lashing out on some vinylcut stickers at $15.
its a great ride for socializing and on days when theres a headwind
