      Idea - Build a motorbike, but the rear wheel is flexible too and reacts to how you steer the front wheel (like the Redbull Soapbox race cars where the front and back parts are joined by a coupling, so the rear moves in reaction to the front part).

    This video and the last felt very fluid, more so than some of the earlier videos. Some before felt a little bit corporate, like very strictly scripted and stuff, and I like the more personal feel in these videos! In the same video on James taking a break, they mentioned how they began to feel less personal and more like a company. This video makes it feel like some changes are taking place, and it was very fun to watch! It looked like everyone involved had a lot of fun making it! I really hope this continues, and both James and the rest of the team can continue doing what they love without it becoming a burden.💜

    What if you combined this with Destin's reverse steering bike?

  • Mustafa Al-Ameen
    Mustafa Al-Ameen Month ago +116

    Fun fact, if you turn the steering wheel backwards you would defeat the castor angle and make it correct its way in the backwards direction instead of front direction, it’s the same as in a car where it self corrects after a u-turn but it would drift to a side in reverse.

    • Bill Miller
      Bill Miller Month ago +2

      @Charles Holtforster Right. The caster angle is a function of the steering post as the forks are almost straight. The post angle is significantly more than the forks themselves.

    • Charles Holtforster
      Charles Holtforster Month ago +7

      We tried spinning the handlebars 180°. That didn't work. It was arguably a bit better, but it was still effectively as difficult.
      Reversing the caster angle might work, but that would be a bit more involved than spinning it backwards.

    • Steamrick

      You’re assuming that the tire doesn’t hit the down tube and the cables are long enough to turn the wheel around.

  • IZ
    IZ Month ago +14

    as a mountainbiker that knows how to ride backwards (without the ability to pedal but nontheless) i have a couple of tips to do it better:
    1: Resist the automatic thing where you start bending over the bars and try to rather sit more upright as you normally would when going forward.
    2: Generally try to steer as little as possible as steering will acumulate more and more when you arent used to riding backward and will lead you to fall after seconds.

    I seemed to have unknowingly trained for this most of my life. I used to ride a lot of MTB street and would ride everywhere backwards, my nickname was "Backwards Ben" 🤣
    There are a few key tricks to riding backwards.
    1 - Don't look down at your front wheel, look at the horizon.
    2 - Make micro-adjustments to your steering, big sweeping turns are difficult to recover from.
    3 - Speed is your friend, it's much easier to control with a bit of pace.
    4 - Practice, a lot of it!

    I'd love to see one where you adapt a bike so the pedals power the front wheel, and the handlebars turn the rear wheel. Essentially a forklift-steer bicycle.
    Also, great to see so many students genuinely getting amongst it. I agree, that did seem more fun than calculus.

    Hey Hacksmith, I was doing BMX in the past a lot, and there is a thing with riding backwards. Most of the time you do a 180° or something and use your momentum to drive backwards or ride straight up and then backwards down a quarter pipe. Shure you have to pedal backwards to not instantly stop. The point is, you can learn this, and it's actually way easier than you might think with just a bit of practice. A friend of mine had a free coaster rear hub which disengages when you go backwards for easier longer backwards riding. He was so good at it, sometimes he rode a mountain down backwards 🤣

  • EosTyrwinn
    EosTyrwinn Month ago

    I think there is a way to fix the steering. The reason a bike's steering normally is self correcting is because of the angle of the front fork. Because of the angle, the point where the wheel contacts the ground is behind the steering axis. You might be able to make it steer in reverse if you angled the front fork backwards instead of forwards. That would require building a whole bike frame to accommodate that though and you still might have issues from it being rear wheel steering but it might work.

  • LBricks

  • James Pike
    James Pike 10 days ago

    A little bit of drag on the front brake once you get some speed (just a tiny bit, not enough to lock it up) would probably result in increased front wheel stability.

  • Connor Isenberg

  • Hey I'm a Maker

    I'd give it a good pedal to go backwards and then attempt to coast it the rest of the way.
    I think standing up and putting more weight over the front wheel also helps adjust your balance point.

    1:50 the stability that the bike has going forward is because of the "caster angle". If its positive, like in a bike, it self-stabilices the wheel. If its negative, like in a shopping cart, it makes it wanna flop around.
    The extreme version of this would be... The Citröen 2cv!
    The strange suspension of that car has a caster angle of almost 90°!. So when its going backwards, its surprisingly easy to flip over the whole car if you're not careful!

    1:55 I think the main reason going backwards is harder is actually the steering wheel being in the front, not the tilted steering tube.

  • Kevin Martin
    Kevin Martin Month ago

    It isn't just a balance thing. If you push a shopping cart backwards and let go it will try to turn itself around. The back (swivel) wheels swing a tiny bit to one side, and this angles the fixed front wheels a bit, causing the front of the cart to drift away from the direction the rear wheels are headed. Positive feedback ensues and the cart reverses itself.
    This would likely be easier to ride if the steering were welded in the straight position.

  • Casey Moffett
    Casey Moffett Month ago

    Another thing that would help is if you locked the hydraulics as its one more motion factor that impacts the feedback on a bike. Most hybrid bikes let you lock them out for more power and control.

  • DontCryOverSpiltMilk

    I would be really interested to see if any freestyle BMX riders would be able to ride it. The Fakie in BMX is just like riding backwards in that you have to compensate for the instability but unless you have a special hub you need to pedal backwards. So someone who knows how to Fakie is only half way. They would still need to convert to pedaling forward.

    Just wondering if you guys ever tried riding the bike while you yourself were turned around on it, so you were facing the back wheel, reaching behind yourself to hold the handlebars. I feel like that could possibly make the bike easier to ride, though it might go against the spirit of the challenge.

    I would like to see a bmxer try this, I reckon someone who has a good fakie would pick it up pretty quick, remember Matty Cranmer not only rode the backwards steering bike, but managed to do a hop barspin on it!

    You guys should combine this with the smarter every day bike. Theoretically they could cancel each other out and be like riding a normal bike but it goes backwards.

      Which one of them? Didn't they have two? One that had inverted steering and one that only turned right?

      that's what I was thinking too.
      I feel like it should work. but also very possible it will mess with your mind even more

    Such a simple switch, but it makes the simple bike so much more difficult. Nice

    I wonder if a opposite steering system would make it easier, like when you steer to the left it actually steers to the right

    This combined with Destins opposite steering bike would be the thing of nightmares

    I want to see this paired with the bike that steers in the opposite direction 😂

      Yes his gestures and tone while speaking is similar to Tom except he pauses between sentences more(went through the entire video after this comment)

    I wonder if combining the backwards and the reverse steering of the other video would help

    Lol, that 6 legged mech really chewed your budget xD
    But honestly, low budget projects like this are equally cool 😎

    I’ve seen you guys build things like lightsabers and Marvel weapons, which is pretty cool. I would love to see if you guys could make real working B1 Battle Droids… or just 1 B1 Battle Droid. That’d be really cool!!
