Recumbent Bike Construction Plans

Recommended Posts

I have a normal exercise bike and want to convert it to a recumbent exercise bike. 

I need some measurement plans. 

I thought Pinterest would have some plans but can't find any. I've tried varying my browser search criteria but can't bring up plans for a Recumbent Exercise Bike. They must be on the net somewhere.

Anyone got any plans or point me in the right direction? Thanks.

You can buy a stand to make your bike an exercise bike. Lazada has them. Have a look. 🙂

I thought for one horrible moment you were planning on venturing out onto the Thai roads on a recumbent bike.

 

A recipe for "farang hedgehog syndrome" 😞

 

No. But there again, as every motorbike and bike rider knows, once you jump in the seat your personality changes.

When I used to go diving and swimming in the ocean I would often worry about a shark sneaking up behind me to kill me, but when on a motorbike etc, never worry about the rest of the people behind trying to kill me.

My back still gives me trouble on a normal exercise bike so thought I'd convert it to a recumbent bike and see if the same probs.

Yes thanks, but I want a recumbent bike without the cost. I have an exercise bike I want to convert.

Ahhhh ,yes, sorry. A recumbent can be picked up second hand, for a couple thousand baht. I was lucky to get mine for 1000 baht from a guy in CM. The clock doesn't work, but I don't need it. 🙂

I just put a post in the Isaan forum checking on secondhand recumbent bikes. 

I can't access Facebook marketing as I removed Facebook last year. Was spending too much time there. Thanks.

This is the one I want to convert. Looks easy (for some) but I need a plan. Most people having lived here for a while will be unfamiliar with the word PLAN.

Just a thought... turn it around, reverse the handle-bar, raise the (now) front foot, find a comfortable deck chair and pedal away.  😎
