I found this interesting and curious. I appreciate the return to non-petrol based transport and homemade tools of all kinds. At the same time tho, I’ve been following the campaign to end the use of horses for pulling carriages in New York city because of the suffering of the horses.

I would really like to see this kind of home built transport but using gear driven pedal power to allow a human (or two or three) to move cargo efficiently without enslaving animals.

I think we know enough about leverage and torque to do something like that fairly simply tho I would personally have to do a bit of research to find the information needed.

We currently have human pedal powered party buses and sight seeing trams in St Petersburg so obviously the engineering is available and possible.

Jealous? You can build this auto-alternative.
