SpinCycle Stunt Trike revisisted

Hey Zombies! I'm Joel from New Zealand. Just joined the forum. I saw a video on your YouTube site for the SpinCycle. I want to know more about that bike! ~ Thanks, Joel.

Hey Joel. Here's some more info. about the SpinCycle. It even spent some time at the Telus World of Science in Calgary a few years ago as part of a bicycling exhibit!

The SpinCycle is a radical front wheel drive stunt trike that offers a ride like nothing else on the planet. It rides much like any other bicycle, capable of respectable speed, but with a quick flick of the wrist, you are instantly sucked into a spinning vortex of insane G-force.

The great thing about this project is that it can be made using only a few bits of steel tubing, a pair of shopping cart caster wheels, and a recycled kid's bicycle. You will need only a welder, grinder and a few nights work to create what will surely become your new favorite toy. Due to its extremely rugged construction, the SpinCycle can be enjoyed by all ages, and will easily take the abuse that us "big kids" will force it to endure.

Amaze your friends with five or more high speed 360s in a row, build a pair of SpinCycles and start a crazy racing circuit, scare your neighbors, or just have a whole lot of fun while you get a great workout. The SpinCycle is a forgiving project that can be built with just about any parts you can scrounge up, and leaves plenty of room for your own custom modifications and alterations.

Take a look at our Builder's Gallery to see other SpinCycle examples, including many creative modifications to the plan. Our international builders community ranges from students to retired engineers, but they all have one thing in common - the desire to build their own stuff!
