Has anyone created a instructable on making a treadmill bike? Answered

I've seen online and the occasional science show on TV, about a guy who made a bicycle that uses a treadmill for the main drive. I was wondering if anyone here has made one and/or knows where I can download plans? I was kind of hoping to make one based on a tricycle layout as that would be more stable and use a standard bicycle brake on the steering wheel.

The easiest way to find out if anyone has created an Instructable on a topic is to use the search box at the upper right corner of this page, and/or to do a quick scan through related topics. Which you can do as easily as we can.

If there isn't one already posted, remember that this is an opportunity for you to create one...

(Personally, I have trouble imagining how that would work... or at least how it would work well.)

Not really a treadmill bike, but there are a few electric bikes sneaking around the site, such as this one.

Yeah, I saw that. Not what I meant. I was looking for something to take on the streets.
