vehicle that can operate as unicycle bicycle or trike
a unicycle type vehicle with a chassi that works as a
in the middle line, long end, of the chassis is tube with a
fork that allows one of the two wheels carried in the
wheelbarrow to be used as a back wheel on a bike.
the 'legs' of the wheelbarrow have dropouts and the two
wheels can be put in those dropouts as well to make a
the vehicle can be pushed , or it can be ridden. riding in
unicycle mode however is quite difficult and it is easieast
pushed as a wheelbarrow in that mode.
this is the base, with a counterweight in the front , a back set of wheels can be built. [teslaberry, Apr 30 2014]
||Odd! Odd category as well.
||I wonder - must one straddle the barrow part of the
wheelbarrow to pedal when using the thing as a
bike? That could be perfect if, like me, you are very
tall and phenomenally well endowed. The
wheelbarrow option had occurred to me but seemed
||imagine a penny farthing with the big wheel being
the main wheel on a wheelbarrow that has two
legs for two training wheels attached at the sides.
||the legs are collapsible. when up, they ensure
both wheels support the vehicle at an angle where
the 'tail' wheel in the back is off the ground.
||the pedal chains up to a gear/sprocket on the
uniwheel , which is always on the ground.
||in mono wheel mode, you are going to have a
tough time as the counterbalance weight on the
front of the vehicle makes it a bit clunkey. and
heavy for a unicycle.
