In this view the pedal plates are rotated to their extreme clockwise position (fourth notch on the top of the pedal plates), the pedal shafts are fully extended, and the seat and handlebars are rearward. the small separation of the axis of hip rotation of the rider from that of the pedal shafts results in most of the leg movement being in the hips and focused on the gluteus maximus and the lower abdominal muscles. The pedals can be moved alternately (as shown) in order to simulate no-impact running exercises. They can also be moved together in the same direction resulting in torque being transmitted to the upper body. This torque can be resisted by triceps, biceps, deltoids, pectorals, abdominal muscles, erectors ect. To effect a complete upper body workout.
The pedal shafts have been shortened, the pedal plates are in the extreme counter-clockwise position (first notch), and the seat and handlebars are forward. With this geometry there is a large separation between the axis of the hips of the rider and that of the pedal shafts so there is greater involvement of the quadriceps and biceps femoris muscles that extend and flex the knees. Also the upper abdominal muscles are more involved as the pedal lift is higher.
This is a close-up of the two pulleys on the right side of the rear hub. They are equipped with internal roller clutches which transmit torque to the rear wheel only in the forward direction and free-wheel when turned rearward. The inner pulley engages the rear hub on the pedal downstroke only and it has two slots. The diameter of the inner slot is approximately twice as large as that of the outer one. In this case the downstroke cable is positioned in the large-diameter inner slot which effects a low-gear range that makes it possible to climb very steep hills. Once a hill is crested and the gear ratio increased, subsequent pedal downstrokes automatically return the cable to the smaller, high gear slot. There is no chance of the cables slipping on the pulleys as they are positively locked by knotted ends.

Pedal Power: Spinning for the Future at CCAT
By Ben Erickson Pedal power energy has been in use since the nineteenth century. Pedal power uses the most powerful muscles in the body: the quads, hamstrings, and calves. When pedaling in a circular motion at sixty to eighty revolutions per minute, with the use of toe clips, almost every muscle in the human legs can be used to make energy. Ninety-five percent of the exertion put into pedal power is converted into energy. The average rider at a continuous road speed of twelve miles per hour can produce a quarter horsepower, or enough energy to light two, one hundred-watt light bulbs (Wilson 1977). The average, fit, adult rider can produce only 75 watts or 1/10hp when

The North American Velomobilist Website Created by Ethan Davis What is a velomobile? Here are a few pictures of some of the most commonly found commercially manufactured velomobiles. Click on the picture for a link to the velomobile's homepage
Although velomobiles are currently being used by some people in Europe as a practical and environmentally responsible means of personal transportation, there are very few being used in North America. I feel that the velomobile has a role to play here in North America as well. If you agree, this website is intended as a resource to help you in obtaining a velomobile for your own use whether you decide to build it yourself, or buy a road ready machine. To make it more user friendly, I've rearranged the website and provided intra-site links organized in the outline format below.

Offers an extensive list of home pages of recumbent riders around the globe. Also, features articles and views of the author, along with videos of various bents.
If you've seen my .sig, you'll probably know that I have a recumbent bike. If you'd like to see some pictures of a wide assortment of 'bents, and other Human Powered Vehicles, check out the International Human Powered Vehicle Association as well as Mark Matarella's new (well, new when added the link...) site. You may also wish to check out the home pages of some fellow recumbent riders. (As of early '97, it has upwards of 100 people on it.) If you wish, you can read my FAQ on these rather weird bikes that tend to get one's picture in the paper. (The IHPVA FAQ was originally based on this one.) And here is a post I made to the HPV list in July '94 entitled, "New 'Bent Owner's Comments Log." I was rather surprised recently to see the results of a Webcrawler search on the word "recumbent." A picture of a Back to Back Recumbent from the Smithsonian Magazine. There's also a very nice website for the magazine, Bicycle Culture Quarterly. And Recumbent Cyclist News, which is very popular among recumbent riders, has recently (late '96) put up a page, too. HPV Mailing list archive A little experiment.

98. My BikeE Recumbent Bike
A page about my BikeE recumbent bicycle, with many BikeE and Santa Cruz (California) bicycling links.

Sadly , BikeE, formerly the world's largest recumbent bike manufacturer, went out of business in August 2002. I continue to ride and this page continues to be about the BikeE, and as BikeE was the closest thing there's ever been to a mass-market recumbent, you'll still see a fair number of BikeEs around in general. Even though, again, BikeE has been out of business for eight years, used BikeEs are still easy to find , and people continue to seek them out due to their comfort, ease of use, style, and low price. However, if you're looking for a bike similar to the BikeE in terms of being a basic, low-cost, easy-to-ride recumbent, but from a manufacturer that's still in business and able to support it, I recommend that you check out the Easy Racers EZ-1 or the Cycle Genius Sparrow In September of 1998 I bought a used purple BikeE recumbent bike through the BikeRoute classifieds , and have been having a lot of fun with it ever since. This is the basic "
