The birth of a Challenge Ventus
For Treeker Treks in Leusden we are building 10 Challenge Ventus recumbents. Here is the story of the birth one of these recumbents.
It begins with the mounting of the various individual components.
The frame is mounted on the mounting standard and the head tube is milled.
The assembling starts with the headset and front fork.
Then the handlebar, as you see with all the levers, shifter, brake and shifter cables.
Next comes the rear swingarm. At this time the outer casings are also fitted.
The rear wheel and seat are the last items mounted on the work stand. The cables are connected and temporarily adjusted.
For mounting the boom and chain the recumbent is hung in the bicycle hoist.
The front boom is cut to length. In this case 3 different sizes are made.
After mounting the chain, seatpad and out small parts it is ready for many miles.
