Leaning Reverse Trike Design


Front suspension design for a Free To Caster tilting reverse trike

No Comments

I have explored 3 basic suspension types for my tilting Free To Caster reverse trike. I will explain what I feel are the pros and cons of each with some illustrations of various concepts. Scrub is when the contact patch moves sideways relative to the plane of the wheel. Scrub does not happen when the […]

This illustrates a simplified all mechanical version of my free to caster reverse-trike. It has the ability to transition between free to caster and normal steer modes. I tried to make the mechanics as simple as possible and hopefully not require power assist to lean a human powered bike with rider. To describe how it […]

Concept for human powered leaning trike

Steering by leaning works by tilting the wheels and […]

Also because human powered doesn’t require registration by the motor vehicle department I’ll be able to test this in my neighborhood. So […]
