I am still working on the 2wd delta but in the meantime decided to take a week off to build an exercise bike for my wife. Like many on this forum I have a good supply of parts lying around. Adding to this is a recently acquired bunch of parts from a former recumbent racer. Some time next week hopefully it will be ready to use. Picture to follow in a few days.

Here is a picture of the exercise bike for the wife and myself occasionally. I used the rear triangle from a bike prev cut up, a single speed chainring and the rear 24" wheel from the high roller I couuldn't get comfortable on. It has a 5 speed rear freewheel but the rear deraileur is not hooked, instead I just left the chain on the smallest ring at the back. Tension is set 2 ways, the magnet strength on the handlebar and a tensioner at the back on the trainer.
