    Ian W. Swindells (forum member swizz69) always wanted a recumbent bicycle. Researching online brought him to the AtomicZombie builders forum. After learning about the Warrior Tadpole Trike, Swindells was motivated to design and build a Front Wheel Drive recumbent lowracer. In a feature article for the AZ newsletter, Swindells discusses the project and the challenges along the way. Read his story>>

      Have you seen the pedal-powered Escargot boat that could be used as a narrow canal boat? Think it is from an American boat builder. I may have copied the article sometime last year or the year before this would be a project a family could tackle. Over the weekend I may have a change to look for the article and post on forum.

      Did the turning wheel cause trouble with the drive chain and the chain bending?

    You feel the bumps, so I don't go off road. It's very easy to manoeuvre with the USS, so I can usually avoid bumps and ruts. My next build will have suspension.

    Very cool. I'm starting to build one of these soon, but considering incorporating a rear suspension. How rough does your ride without suspension?

    Thanks. I made the seat. ˝ inch EMT welded together with 3 cross braces. Phifertex fabric with EZ Lace binding, stitched by my wife on her Sears sewing
