I need your suggestions for my upcoming iBle!!! Answered
I was deciding on whether to let y'all know what I'm working on, and since I don't know much in the area I'm working in, I decided it would be best.
I am working on an amphibious bicycle that can operate efficiently on land and water. There are just a few on the Interweb, and they are for sell at high prices ($500 bucks at least.)
I am trying to do this with as little cost and as much recycled materials as possible.
So far, I've decided that:
My propulsion mechanism either has to be a prop like your average boat, or a paddlewheel. Both would be powered by my back wheel.
I am considering wooden pontoons filled with 2 liter bottles or gallon milk jugs, reminiscent of this iBle.
I want to stay as high as possible, but I want to be able to go straight from land to water and vice versa. Basically, no assembly required to change terrain.
If anybody has any ideas at all, please let me know!
