A bicycle wheel fixed to a crank is driven by means of a,bicycle footpedal placed on the long'axis of the frame. The drive is/transmittedby a flat belt (cut from the profiled surface of a bicycjle tire) to awooden disc that is coupled to the spindle. A transmissi!on ratio of1-:.4 has proved to be the most satisfactory,‘h ;It is advisable that the wooden pulley has a spherical shape to pr&ventthe belt from slipping off it./ '.,There are several ways of attaching a crank to the bicy/cle wheel. Infig.1.1. thi has been done by clamping two,pieces of 'timber in one'line 'hbetween the rim and,on either side of the hub. These tdo pieces of wood :balance each.other.IQ
