Interesting stuff. I basically skimmed through it (there's a lot of material there) but it's a pretty detailed series of articles on how a piston head went about designing a recumbent trike from automotive engineering principles. The discussion on chassis and suspension geometry is particularly good, lots of info on how to go about designing a suspension system that will perform well. It also highlights how much more complicated these things get when you've got three or more wheels... bike geometry is so much simpler.

Glad you found this interesting Hotdog. I was starting to wonder if it was worth posting this kind of stuff when I come across it if there was no interest.

Les ... always worth posting ... take a look at the number of viewers, even if you don't get replies. Also adds to search engines which may attract new forum members. As they say, content builds ...
