Introduction: The Gearcycle Part 1

About: I am the type of person that tries to make the most out of life. I take what opportunites I can and make the most of them. I am a DIY type of person that likes to build stuff: obvious since I am here on this i…

A bicycle that I have modified in a few ways. I have set up a gear system which indirectly multiplies the size of the sprockets by the pedals on a regular bike. It also has pedals which are several times longer than regular bike pedals, giving you greater torque. As of right now it has several problems, but I am going to attempt to solve them. Very complicated to make this if you are going to make it.

Step 1: Take a bicycle and build some kind of frame system onto which you attach everything else.

Step 2: Set up a gear system going from big to small to big to small to big, etc to create high gearing.

Step 3: Connect the gear system with chains.

Step 4: Put some kind of one way device such as a socket wrench or one way clutch on the back gear.

Step 5: Create massive long crank arms from which you extend from the back of the bike.

Note: there are many more steps than this, more than can be put on this post. Also note that I have tried to get this bike working correctly after 2.5 year and still have not gotten it to work correctly. If you are going to make this you probably need very high precision.
