an enduring interest, and I have written a printable pamphlet for MassBUG as well as on-web
instructions. Hopefully these will help you too. There's the more
traditional 12V system with a sealed lead acid battery for about
$AUS80, but also the top of the line
NiMH system based around a cordless drill. That gives fast
charging and high power output, plus a very clean mounting on the
bike. It costs somewhere from $AUS500 (Panasonic) down to about
$AUS100 (KMart NiCad system). At the 24 hour MTB race our system
was amongst the best on show!

- What is a Recumbent?
