The invention relates to transport machinery, and more specifically to vehicles driven by human muscle force, - the rental.

Widely known bike with krugobaikalny muscular drive with the wheel, frame, saddle, two running wheels, leading and driven sprockets, gear mechanism, a brake mechanism acting on the rim of the traveling wheels.

However, for well-known bike is characterized by the variability of the torque transmitted by the pedals on leading asterisks, as torque increases from "zero" at the top of the pedal position, to "maximum" in the middle, and is reduced to "zero" at the bottom of the pedal position.

Cyclist to increase torque at overcoming steep slopes, having risen from the seat, acts on the pedal its weight, since the force of muscles of the legs while sitting less than the weight of the cyclist.

This bike has the speed is limited by the number (and connection) leading and trailing asterisks.

Also known bike rack (patent RU №2122958, WM 1/04)containing a drive mechanism with a spring-loaded toothed racks, each of which is installed in the roller guide with the possibility of reciprocating motion in a cross beam mounted on the frame, one end of each rail is installed is edal, and each drive mechanism is made of a toothed rim associated with placed inside the sleeve, having a crown gear and a hub mounted on the shaft sprocket and between the gear hub and the crown placed spring-loaded rollers, each of which is mounted with the possibility of escape from the inner side of the crown, which from the outside is connected with a toothed rim that interacts with a spring-loaded toothed rack, the chain covering the driving and driven sprockets are made with rubber-roller, and includes a brake pedal mounted on the hinge can be rotated interlocked with the spring-loaded foot for interaction with the stub-roller chain.

This bike has a complex structure roller guide spring gear racks and gear wheels overrunning clutch, gear racks and their springs are not protected from dust and dirt.

In addition, the speed of this bike may change (increase, for example) with the combination (Union, size) kinematic pairs: wheel-driven sprocket and the gear rim overrunning clutch - toothed rack and moving the pedal down for a certain length of spring-loaded toothed rack moves to the same length. This sprocket is rotated by the angle corresponding to this item is remeshing.

The aim of the invention is to increase the speed of the bike.

This goal is achieved by the fact that the drivers supplied are installed inside buildings still additional gear rack, and with the possibility of reciprocating motion of a plunger mounted on its lower end a gear which engages with the teeth of the additional rack and the teeth, additionally performed on the opposite one with respect to the teeth surface of the spring toothed rack, and the pedal is mounted on the upper end of the pusher. A spring-loaded toothed rack mounted inside the housing in the guide-type bearings, the upper ends of the spring-loaded gear racks protected from dust and dirt covers, and the lower ends of the cups, inside which is placed the spring.

Bike rack racing includes a frame 1, a steering wheel 2, a seat 3, a front 4 and rear 5 wheels, mechanism switch to the Oia gear 6, brakes 7, acting on the rims of the front and rear wheels. On the axis of the rear wheels 5 are mounted the driven sprocket 8 associated endless sleeve-roller chain 9 with the leading stars 10. Leading sprocket 10 mounted on a shaft 11 that is installed in the frame 1 for rotation. At the end of a shaft 11 fixed inner race 12 overrunning interacting with the inner surface 13 of the outer casing 14 overrunning by spring-loaded rollers 15. The rollers 15 are mounted in the longitudinal grooves of the inner casing with the possibility of covering the inner surface 13 of the outer casing 14. On the outer surface of the shroud 14 is made teeth cooperating with the teeth of the rails 16, spring-loaded by a spring 17. Springs 17 are placed in the cups 18. The glasses are also capacity for lubrication. On the opposite with respect to the teeth surface of the gear racks 16 are made the same teeth 19, which interacts with the teeth of the gears 20 mounted on the lower end of the pusher 21. Gear 20 are in engagement with racks 22. On the upper end of the tappet 21 is fixed to the pedal 23. The outer casing 14, spring-loaded toothed rack 16 and the pushers 21 are mounted in housings 24, each of which is attached to the cross beam 25, fastened to the frame 1. Moreover, the outer casing 14 mounted with the possibility of the awn of rotation, gear sprung slats 16 and the pushers 21 - reciprocating motion up and down in guides 26 type bearings and toothed rack 22 is stationary. The upper ends of gear racks 16 and pushers 21 are protected from dust and dirt rubber covers 27 (not shown in the figure), and the lower ends of the spring-loaded gear racks 16 - cups 18.

The work of the bike is as follows.

When the pressure of the cyclist's foot on one pedal 23 (or, having risen from the seat and pressing on the pedal its weight) pedal, squeezing rubber case 27, moves the plunger 21 down on the length L (figure 4). During this time, during which the plunger 21 is moved by the length L, the gear 20, interacting with the teeth of the fixed toothed rack 22 and spring (two-sided toothed rack 16 moves past the length 2L. This is due to the addition of the two movements of the gear 20 and - forth, together with the plunger 21, and rotating around its axis from the interaction with the stationary gear rack 22, as by moving the plunger 21 to the length L of the gear teeth 20 being in engagement with the teeth 19, move and retaining the rack 16 also on the length L. at the same time the gear 20, due to the interaction with the stationary gear rack 22, is rotated around its axis by an angle suitable for the store it moving, equal to L, fixed on a rack 22. Each point dividing the circumference of the gear 20 follows a path equal to L, giving movement and spring-loaded toothed rail 16, also equal to L. Thus a spring-loaded toothed rack 16 performs the labor movement, is equal to 2L. While a spring-loaded toothed rack 16 rotates the outer race 14 overrunning clutch on the corner, two times more than when you move the pedal on the length L of the prototype, drawing the inner surface 13 of the spring-loaded rollers 15. The rollers 15 jam the inner ring 12 and rotate twice as quickly bonded with her shaft 11 (right scheme). Therefore, the sprocket 10 mounted on the shaft 11 by means of a bushing roller chain 9, also rotates at twice the sprocket 8 drive wheel 5 of a Bicycle. Each toothed rack 16, having reached the lower position, the limited compressed rubber cover 27, returns to the original under the action of the spring 17, while the second will be to make a working stroke, etc.

We offer design, ceteris paribus (the force on the pedal and the torque transmitted to the axle of the rear wheel), allows comparison with the prototype to increase the maximum speed of the bike.
