Human Powered Tracked Snow Vehicle Example

Comments on an interesting style human powered track vehicle.

Some positive points that come to mind:

  • Recumbent position for the rider and the seat looks good
  • Simplicity of chain drive mechanisms taken directly from a bicycle
  • Center of gravity looks to be positioned close to the front of the track - matches the requirement for easier turning of the track according to Greg.

Some negative points:

  • Slider on track (201) seem too high friction for our intended use.
  • Complexity of idler gears throughout the chain drive
  • Don't much care for the look of such a small wheel at the rear of the track
