    Default rear step and it's recumbent sister

    Greg,

    You are correct about the rear step. If there is no weight up front, there is a tendency for the front to lift up when you step on the step. I dont think this will be as much of an issue when the step area is covered with a peice of ply wood, as people will tend to aim for an area forward of the rear most edge. Thus the current 14" lever rearward of the axle will be shortened.

    In the worst case, the front end will lift up about 3 feet into the air. If this proves to be a bad enough problem, I can shorten the step to make it that much harder to lift the front end.

    Billy,

    Thanks for the praise. I just started the painting process, so here are some more pics.

    Question First generation?

    Hi robertwb70,
    nice change on what I've seen around. My first question is which generation design is this and do you have plans to build a few more?

    My main observation is that the gap between the bottom of the seat should have some material closing this, as it could be a 'blanket catcher'.

    Nice color too

    This is number 1, the prototype. I'll probably build more of the same and different designs but I'm not sure when.

    Yeah the gap is one of the oversights in design that needs to be addressed but since I operate in Florida and hate the cold blankets aren't much of a concern.

    I have a trailer attached to a surly cross-check. It works well enough in my town.

    So guys, how does one build his/her own pedicab and get a vin # for it? I think NYC requires a pedicab w/a vin # to license it.... it looks like I'll have 18 months to make me own pedicab so I want to start working on it.

    TIA,

    Gianni

    I'm guessing you have to make up your own and either stamp or engrave it into the frame somewhere.

    I've never checked any of my bikes, but do regular bikes have a vin or serial #????

    I'll have to check my bike when I get home tonight.

    If you can stamp your own then I would stamp mine as NYCFF
