I like the K.I.S.S. design of this, and how it keeps you light. I could also see it being done with eye bolts and wing nuts for hardware. depending on the size of dome, a military surplus parachute can also be used as a cover, as they are close to the same sphere as the 3v dome.
Thank you for your reply. Now that you mention it, I can see where side loading would be an issue. From the sound of it, perhaps some sort of self contained transmission would be the solution. I'd assume that's what you mean by a CVT .
Rock on! I'd be curious to see how this could be done with the derailleur system preserved on the rear wheel. I believe that shiftable gears would help increase the efficiency of the machine abs extend its range.
Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom!
Good job, Good LOOKING! VERY impressive!
I'll wager that the external skeleton makes for easier attachment of the cover, but I could be mistaken. Also, with this design, the struts are easier to bolt together from the outside. I guess if he wanted, he could use eye bolts and flange nuts,and then clip his biners to the eyes.I have considered doing an external cover with a military surplus parachute and a kit from zip tie domes.comThis is an excellent instructable!
