while i wan rideing my bc wheel i can up to a hill and thought it would be so nice if i could get up it on the bc.hence forth came the idea to create a bc/ultimate wheel.
it is kind of hard to desribe over righting but here is the desin.
it is kind of like the hub on swats coster uni.there would be a rim and a free spining disk in side it but with a ratchet in side so you could pedal it and stop and coast.
does that make any sence?
i will try to draw it and post a pic of the drawing
Like a freewheel UW? That would be pretty hard to ride, methinks…
Someone in the forums once came up with an idea that would work pretty well:
Have a place to screw the pedals in to the Ultimate Wheel to ride it normally, but then also have a place in the exact center of the wheel to screw them in to. Then you can ride it as a BC wheel when they’re in the center.
But you wouldn’t be able to ride it as an UW then transition right into a BC.
I like your style. Always trying to make a buck. Just a word of advice. You should wait a little longer between your posts. The forums don’t move that fast and people are getting annoyed. Keep up the good work. You start making full uni’s and you might have a career some day.
somebody makes me one and ill ride it! according to swat and other riders i catch on to things fast and within a little while id prolly be riding it. one thing to mention tho is the coaster uni was coastable with the pedals level with the center of the wheel because i had the seat to keep the wheel steady so if you take that out to make a bc wheel then the wheel is going to rub on your legs alot more than a bc wheel because unlike the bc wheel where your feet are lower then the center of the wheel keeping it steady, they will be level with the middle so keeping the wheel upright will be difficult. not that that is going to slow us down:p
I for one don’t like your multitude of sales pitches very much. I feel
they are too aggressive.
But I have to commend you on your inventiveness. Even if this
particular thing (and the BC wheels you posted about in other threads)
sort-of have been thought of before, I think you are on the right
track to becoming a serious builder, especially considering your age.
So keep at it!
