front_drive_trainYou can now follow the "INSTANT" progress of the recumbent build by clicking on the "THE  RECUMBENT" tab at the top of the page, or by clicking on http://threcumbent.blogspot.com

As we snap pictures of the phone they will instantly be posted to not only the website, but to your team hangover email. Both Ross and I have access to post to the blog. Although the blog says "posted by Robert Blanda" it may have come from Ross' phone so don't blame me for everything that gets posted!

Enjoy the progress!

A recumbent bicycle is a bicycle that places the rider in a laid-back reclining position. Most recumbent riders choose this type of design for ergonomic reasons; the rider’s weight is distributed comfortably over several square feet of the back and buttocks. On a traditional upright bicycle, the body weight rests on a few square inches of the sit bones, the feet, and the hands.

Most recumbent models also have an aerodynamic advantage; the reclined, legs-forward position of the rider’s body presents a smaller frontal profile. A recumbent holds the world speed record for a bicycle, and they were banned from international racing in 1934.[1]

Recumbents are available in a wide range of configurations, including: long to short wheelbase; large, small, or a mix of wheel sizes; overseat, underseat, or no-hands steering; and rear wheel or front wheel drive.
