Short wheelbase recumbent

This section gives an overview about a short wheelbase recumbent bike I started built.

Well, at the beginning there was the Enhydra Lutris

Or to be precise the excellent, more than 100 page thick documentation of Olaf Schulz about the design and construction of his recumbent (in german).


With the broken frame of an old touring bike stored in the basement I was set to go…. but as things go welding as well as the financial side was a big problem at that time (student) so that I couldn’t finish the project. What a pity.

If I am lucky I might find some time again and might start working on it once more. At least, all the parts are still stored somewhere.

However here are some pictures of the drawings done with AutoCad. Furthermore the complete AutoCad drawings are available.
