Recumbent Bike Construction Plans

Recommended Posts

Place the existing bike against the wall so it can't move forwards.

Remove the seat (you may not need to).

Position your favourite chair a suitable distance away.

And pedal.

 

Once you have all the dimensions sorted fabricate a simple steel frame to keep the relative positions of seat and bike.

YES, that's what I'm looking for dimensions. Could try that.

You may need to raise the bike on some blocks to get the ideal positioning for you, we are all different of course.

 

There are loads of photos of recumbent bikes on the net to give you an idea, but I too have found nothing DIY.

 

Could be time for you to post on Pinterest 🙂

Tip it up and sit on the handlebars.
