Home Brew Human Powered Vehicles
This blog is a free resource, journal, outlet and forum reflecting my interest in Bikes, Trikes and all manner of human powered vehicles. I currently own way too many bikes and bike related bits and pieces and way too many bits of recovered, recycled and salvaged bits of flotsam I've kept because they could be used for a bike project. The bikes I have currently have in a rideable state in the stable are: a Cannondale mountain bike with a suspension fork and hydraulic brakes, a BikeE recumbent bike with rear suspension and couch like ride. This blog will document my progress this year in converting the remaining 1/2 ton of stuff into rideable vehicles for me, my wife and kids. I have never blogged before and I hope this will help me document the process because this year I will have access to a proper place to work on my stuff for the first time in over ten years. I will be posted photos of my work. My philosophy is I don't build stuff to look pretty. I would like to be able to commute to work be bike in all weather. Anything I make will be functional. Reactions to the blog will be welcomed. Thanks for looking.
