IDEA

I want to design a Cycle Kit for EASY Ride for longer distances. Can you guide me ? Project details Link:- https://docs.google.com/document/d/1SIv9NE2fpyze-uiNPoD6JpT3tH9UFRVLsSPtUIwdowo/edit?usp=sharing

@Rama Linga Swamy, it would be a better idea to reduce theweight of the bicycle, add gear mechanism or electrify the bike for ease of riding, rather than go in for truck tubes and inflate the tyres to make it look huge heavy and cumbersome to operate and manevour the same.

Yeah, that is quite a good idea. Maybe E-bicycles can be come into use. E-bicycles are battery driven cycles with high torque motor fitted on the wheels.
I am not acquainted with mechanical works.I can help you with any electronics or, embedded system based work.

Thank youRama Linga Swamy

Thank you very much to all of you, for encouragement and suggestions. To the best of my knowledge, the Batteries are heavy in weight. In my calculations, the Tubes, whether inflated with Air Pressure or not, will not be having any weight, if at all it may be < .5 kg. I think so.
Secondly, I want to check, when we release the Air Pressure out, will this gives ’ Jet effect ’ to Push forward the cycle,if so, it will be good.

@Ramalingaswamy not it is not the weight alone. Just imagine the inflated tubes of a truck and more imaginary should be the pressure exerted by the tubes for generating the thrust for drive. Some how it does not gel with the concept. I have my limitation for this approach. Adopt a much simpler and effective approach. The battery need not be as heavy as indicated. Also the drive is there to take care of the movement thrust. In the long run it will be a positive innovation.
