TRICRUISER WINTER READY TRIKE PLAN
The suspension spring and rear triangle are taken from a mountain bike frame, giving the TriCruiser the same drive system and gear shifting as the original bike. Under seat steering places your arms in a comfortable and relaxing position.
The linked steering system is easy to make and requires only basic rod ends from the hardware store. Your DIY winter trike will steer just like a regular bicycle, but you do not have to lean into the corners to turn.
The sliding bottom bracket allows the cranks to be adjusted along the main boom so you can deliver optimal power. For riders of different leg lengths, you can move the bottom bracket by adjusting two bolts.
Recycle the head tubes and bottom bracket from old bicycle frame to build your own two headed DIY trike. You can recycle the frame tubing as well or make your frame from hardware store conduit or thin walled tubing. We are all about recycle and reuse.
This two headed mountain bike duplicates the front steering of a regular bicycle, linking it together so you can steer both wheels from one set of handlebars. Ackerman steering geometery is also used for stable and smooth control.
The linked steering system is shown in great detail, and you only need basic hardware store components to make it. The Ackerman steering geometery allos the wheels to follow a porper turning circle for low friction no skid turning.
We are all about recycle and reuse, so the TriCruiser Trike Plan encourages using the parts you have on hand, as well as salvaging bicycle components from old unused frames when you have them. You can build your ownl DIY Delta Trike on a budget, even if you use many new components.
If you have been looking for a way to keep your legs fit during the winter season, then this trike will allow you to exercise outdoors and tackle the seasons that are normally off limits to a two wheeled bicycle. Atomic Zombie’s easy-to-follow trike plan will show you every step with many high resolution photos and clear text so you can build your own winter ready trike for minimal cost.
