How can I make a bicycle wheel spinning at least 2 rotations per sec? Answered
I am looking for an alternative way to spin a bicycle wheel.
The wheel is 26 inch and needs to spin at least 15kph (10mph).
I want to make a display of the Monkey Light Pro I won in the Bicycle Contest.
The wheel has a circumference of 2.1m.
15000m / 2.1m / 60min = 120 rotations per minute / 2 rotations per sec.
Does anyone now How I can make this. It does not have to be exact as long as the speed is over 2 rotations per sec. (15kph/10mph)
I would like to use an electric engine that does not need any work to it and can be recycled from another device.
Idea: could an old fan work?
