I found this amazing render of 3 wheels scooter. When you go fast, you are sometime non stable on your scooter. I sort of know this with my crazy electric scooter. This concept of using 3 wheels and this steering makes it really attractive. It is call the Triton by Cikaric Dragan.
I was doing technical support on the phone and found this while searching for a customer. http://members.westnet.com.au/page3/picaxe-08m_electric_bike.htm
Remember back when I posted that neat push scooter from Maker Faire. Well, this scooter is the same but electric!
That is a 24V 500W DC motor.
Those are two 12 Volt 26Ah SLA in series for 24V total.
Here is the first model he built. It looks more like the one from Maker faire.
That is a 24 VDC, 18 Amp, 450 Watt DC motor. It has a 4.t:1 ratio so the RPM is around 550.
This is something I would love to build. Yeah more stable at high speed and can handle turns better. It would not be that hard to modify my existing scooter to something like this.
I was surfing some great design blog like Yankodesign and found this cool scooter concept by Daniel Dayag.
That looks completely insane! I then when googling and found those other great concepts of scooters. Design boom
“city bug” by omer menashri
“trekrider” by boaz zucker
“armadilo scooter” by ravit biton
I like that design because it folds really small. The hard part if you ever build something like that, would be having this latch system to unlock each segments.
“twister” by asaf koren
I like this system, you pivot the middle part to make a little chopper and sit down or ride it like a scooter upward. One of my design idea is a mix between gokart and scooter. I have some drawings I will share one day.
