From Barry’s blog:
Overall project statistics
- Cost: less than $250 Canadian
- Took less than a month to build (I spent longer because I did lots of thinking and working stuff out). Started in April, 2010, rideable 5 June, 2010.)
- Needed Tools: Hacksaw, wrenches, electric drill, jigsaw, rotary tool (like a Dremel), bicycle multi tool (Crank Brothers Multi-17 Multi Tool, about $27 at Mountain Equipment Coop; Multi-17 has a reliable chain tool for breaking and re-connecting chains), bicycle crank tool (Filzer Crank Multi Wrench from Mountain Equipment $17).
- Optional Tools: Angle Grinder, Drill Press
- Experience with bikes: used to ride, no bike mechanics experience; on June 6, 2010, I changed my first bicycle tire (AFTER building the trike)
- Uses parts from three salvaged bicycles
- LOTS of thought and anxiety about how things will fit or work or fail
- Approximate Dimensions: WIDTH 94cm (37inches). LENGTH 211cm (83 inches). WEIGHT (I don’t know).
