Eric Whiting is an architect in Saratoga Springs, NY who designed and built this recumbent trike. I am certainly no expert on recumbents, but the trike looks nice and features a pretty slick carbon fiber seat/ fender. In addition to the renderings and prototype photos, Eric sent me a 19-page pdf document that included his research, concept sketches, and development renderings. It also chronicled the construction of the prototype and showed images of the finished trike in use. I wish I could share the entire pdf with you, because it is a great example of a well documented design process. Unfortunately I can’t do so on the blog, so I have picked out just a few images.
Eric has a few pictures of the completed trike on a geocities page. He says he plans to put more images of his trike project on the web in the near future. When he does, I will update this post to point to the new site.
