Transmission characterised by use of crankshafts and coupling-rods (B62M15)

Bicycle // 2463194
FIELD: transport.SUBSTANCE: invention relates to bicycle with pedal drive incorporating reciprocating levers. On drive wheel axle (22), outer part of telescopic lever is installed. Gear (23) is installed on outer part of telescopic lever. Arc-shaped pinion rack (24) is mounted on bicycle frame. Gear (25) is linked with one-way rotation clutch (27). Gear (23) is engaged with arc-shaped pinion rack (24) and with gear (25).EFFECT: elimination of chain gear.2 cl, 6 dwg

Recumbent bicycle with linear drive // 2449914
FIELD: transport.SUBSTANCE: bicycle relates to bicycles with backrests and semi recumbent position. Brackets 21 for fastening links 17, 18 is arranged ahead of handlebar 8. Con rods 11, 12 carry pedal posts 24, 25 for high position of pedals 26, 27 to prevent bicyclist lower leg striking against co rods 13, 14 in pedaling. Adjustable clamps 22, 23 allow displacement of posts 24, 25 along con rods 11, 12 to regulate position of pedals 26, 27 to match with bicyclist lengths and, hence, allow fixed position of seat 2.EFFECT: simplified design, higher speed.2 cl, 2 dwg

Pedal car // 2434777
FIELD: transport.SUBSTANCE: invention relates to bicycles with back support and foot drive with reciprocating levers jointed with cranks by con rods. Flexible plate 21 prevents the end of crank 18 equipped with horizontal roller from reaching "dead point" position. Removable seat 10 is fitted with the help of seat stay 24, split fastener, inclined regulator slide 25 and shock absorber 26 of variable-rigidity ensured by varying shock absorber inclination on fastening its lower end in different openings of bracket 27. Releasable luggage frame 43 may be arranged on detachable stays 39 of support wheels 13.EFFECT: higher efficiency of drive and easier use.10 cl, 8 dwg

Bicycle with linear drive // 2400391
FIELD: machine building.SUBSTANCE: invention refers to bicycles with support on back and with crank drive of simultaneous manual and foot action. Shaft of drive sprocket (33) has cranks (29, 30) with connecting rods (47, 48) which are spaced at a distance exceeding width of a seat. Pedals (49, 50) are arranged on internal surface of a middle part of connecting rods(47, 48) in one of orifices (65) facilitating change of pedal trajectory. Handles (66, 67) are set on ends of connecting rods (47, 48) in one of the orifices ensuring arrangement of handles depending on length of arms. Also rollers (43, 44) enveloping guide (42) are mounted on ends of connecting rods (47, 48).EFFECT: convenient trajectory of pedals and facilitation of additional usage of manual drive.4 cl, 15 dwg

Compact bicycle with reciprocating pedals // 2288859
FIELD: transport engineering; bicycles with crank-and-connecting rod transmission.SUBSTANCE: proposed bicycle contains frame 1, driven sprocket 5, driven sprocket 2, chain, steering column 6 with handlebar. Reciprocating pedals are secured to levers to of driven sprocket 2 through rigid tie-rods 3. Devices to bring levers of driving sprocket 2 out of extreme point is hinge-secured on frame 1 and on rigid tie-rods 3. Frame 1 of bicycle provides distance of 10 cm between front and rear wheels in operating position of bicycle. Compactness of bicycle at shipment is provided by pressing of pedals to tie-rod 3.EFFECT: use of rider weight as main moving force.2 cl, 2 dwg

Vehicle muscular drive // 2247676
FIELD: transport engineering.SUBSTANCE: invention relates to drives with reciprocating levers. Driving rocker 2 and driven rocker 4 are connected by connecting rod 3. Pedals are secured on driving rockers 2, and tie-rods are connected to driven rockers 4 for coupling them with freewheeling mechanisms 6. Driven rockers 4 can be suspended from slider 10, rocker or eccentric to change ratio of drive in motion.EFFECT: enlarged ratio change range in drives with reciprocating levers.6 cl, 13 dwg
