Re: Cool New Three-wheelers (and other things of that nature)


How about this:

I'm seeing more of these each day on the streets of London. Apparently aimed at 'new' bike riders but experienced ones are having fun on them sliding the front and shenanigans like that.

Re: Cool New Three-wheelers (and other things of that nature)


Aptera is in the Progressive X Challenge going on now in June, 2010. Nice design if you like setting side by side in a Tadpole setup. For me it is all about aerodynamics, I'd like to see the headlights on a spring that allows them to "POP OUT" when the switch is pulled, thus keeping them 'tucked in" and not used durring daylight hours. I believe that with the newer LED Lights out for turn signals and running/brake lights that minimum power will be drawn and allow us to continue using sealed Motorcycle batteries. I don't know IF anyone has used any vertical or daigagonal rear stabilizers yet or for that matter any frontal aerodynamics. I have not started building but I have ideas that I wold chat about to anyone already driving an IndyCycle so to improve any yaw or instabilities that are felt on the open road. Frontal windscreens and or a cockpit are concerns as well as having a gortex cover for the cockpit area so rain will not fill the vehicle and destroy equipment,

The computer softerware program did not like the use of cockpit for the area that the driver sets in. I suppose drivers area, seat area would work as well. Like an Indy car I believe that the additon of the rear wing whether it be both vertical uprights and a horizontal spoiler or even diaganal versions on the rear quarter of the IndyCycle would improve aerodynamics as well as allow you to incorporate LED Strips (running, braking and turn signals) in the training edge for better visability.
   Like Acabion tail wings, I believe canards or short wings may be needed for the IndyCycle. I will know soon enough as when I build my Indycycle I will run it through the paces especially at high speeds and post my results. As an avocate for SAFETY my build will incorporate LED's as well as a strobe that may be used when desired.
