This is my Green & Lean HPV, (Human powered vehicle)
It is made from a combination of parts available at home right from used computer chair to a kid's outgrown bicycle.
The goal of this project is to promote Green Living in Malaysia to create the awareness of Global Warming caused by excessive noxious emissions and how we can do our part to help the Environment from further depleting through Cycling as one of our mode of Commute.
This HPV is designed with only 3 gearing system (initially and upgraded accordingly) for leisure Cruising, Hill climbing and Down-hill riding. Gear ratios were specially selected for a most efficient use of our Human Power, roughly 1/8 of an Horsepower.
Average speed attained with a cadence of 70 is 28km/hr distributing your weight evenly on a sponged seat ergonomically position for a relaxed ride relieving pressure points on sensitive parts.
Apart from this it can also be used for muscles toning up & burning of Waste cholesterol as you pedal.
