bernard240vdc: Hi guys there I also made a very similar exercise bike but
instead of the scooter motor I used a car alternator instead,,
very simple build a solid stand to hold a regular bike with the rear
wheel off the ground ,, remove the rear tire and then run a
long belt into the empty rim and also around the alternator
pulley, this setup works just right giving the alternator just
the right speed at normal pedalling speeds ,,, now a
rheostat in series with the alternator field will allow one to
dial how hard you want the machine to be to pedal
alternator output can simply be sent into a 12volt battery and
a ammeter will give you an idea how mucht power you are
putting out... I myself tried this setup it worked just
fine makes for a good exercise bike or even if you where
alone no other vehicle available could possibly be used to get
car going if by mistake you left the lights on or something
and battery good but just drained
Jake Jones: Get rid of the chain and have direct drive to the generator. You will
increase the efficiency. Also, the flexing of the wood frame, which robs
energy, can be replaced with rigid metal. You've probably already made
these changes by now.
bernard240vdc: This exercise bike that I made would not directly boost a car
normally but could charge a battery say several minutes
pedalling might get you out o a bind and unlike a battery booster pack
would not run down possibly
Maher Ghazal: I would consider a flywheel to avoid fluctuations.
Edwin Dueck: For a gym that is a great idea, thanks for sharing your video.
PoochieMan123: Use them for the spin classes and have those classes every hour!
daniel chung: ... It's a matter of time that we will no longer use coal or gas nor
Keepingittocool: That was cool.
clnmyjts: tent city in Az has a bicycle generator hooked up to a TV if someone
wants to watch TV they have to pedal the bicycle..( the generator must
putting out enough to run the TV I was there and watch TV while same one
else was peddling ) BUT I don`t know for sure if the TV was a TV than ran
on 110 AC current or ran off of 12 DC volt. )
Tony Boroni: one person can produce hardly nothing.
Cynical Zombie: I would love to make something like this to help power my computer...
problem is... I have a 780W power supply in it.
Jim Territo: So can generators be applied to "dumbell" style work- outs? And if you can
do enough work in an hour to fully charge a phone, it would be worth it.
Intransitman: @SeriousBusiness100 Also transportation and land use policy is different
too, they tend to focus more on being able to walk to places & better
transit service. While here in North America it's about driving & spreading
destinations further out.
JULYINJULY: Looks like this power legs could go a lot faster. I bet with a good chain
setup and an inverter that has a higher power tolerance you would but 200
watts easy. I remember the video you guys did last year with the regular
inverter your wifey had the same problem over voltaging the unit. I bet a
24v inverter would be a good choice. Place 2 motors in red red black black
you can get it.
Intransitman: @brt5470 I'm in Montreal Canada and here it's 6-8 cents per kWh.
stiggyh: all gyms should have these :)))))))))))))))
Denis Zykov: Try this - Green Cycle Plus! Free Green Energy video
don44077: You are a very funny guy! Great videos. Got any info on tracking devices
for the Fresnel lenses?
kaizercharles: Yeah, your right. I see good things such as flywheels to store energy and
gear changers. Do you have an idea on how to create a good massive flywheel?
Shiblee AR.: THUMBS UP IF YOU REACHED HERE FROM DJ BLENDS VIDEO =D
Miamijunglist: 105 watts would power all of the light bulbs that I let run at once
iulian28ti: LIGHT !
supergokue1: Thanks for the good info about grid tie inverter.
ZullGostnu2: Good information, this is useful. Thanks for providing information on Grid
Tie Inverters...as opposed to a normal inverter.
sssssBOOOM: @dobberdoss the weather is bad, or they need lower impact work outs, or
they need to do some hill climbs, or they want to know there heart rate, or
they would like to have a better pace. or they want to be closer to the
other machines they work out on. the list is endless nothing to do with
godsend420: stay green even if u dont smoke weed haha vid effects ☆☆☆☆☆
Gr0nTh0s: You must to protect your ears...
Ethan Nino: Good idea to entice gym patrons, you get a discount on your membership
proportional to however much power you generate, maybe even getting money
FROM the gym if you work out there a lot.
Commentsification: thumbs up if u clicked this vid for the huge arm
fazal manan: Great work
The Papa Smurf: could i use a generic invert if i planned on just powering say my pc or tv
in power outtage or can i somehow set it up to charge a battery bank when
power goes out?
FrankyZ: have them all indiviudually metered and make it so if you do this much in
amonth you get a discount. make a scoreboard. your discounts will probably
offset the savings but its a great marketing, getting more people to come
and try to comptete
pubtor: strong arms lol
Willie Bill: I watched a video on youtube, this guy took an electric motor, and a
generator. the motor starts on AC power, which drives the generator, he
says the generator has been altered to put out more power than normal, so
the generator powers the motor, plus a bench grinder, is this possable? or
is that a bunch of bologna?
Nate Taylor: An attached flywheel might be able to smooth out the voltage and the
hoser4: Plug the TV into the inverter.
wan2byoda: cool vid, u need to wrk out both arms :) there is a lot of stuff u can do
to improve the bike set up to make it more efficient. I can see how a whole
spinning class with motivated folks can crank out some real power
Nickk388: may i make a suggestions to your videos. Maybe a lot of people might not
agree with me and thats ok i dont mind i just want to make a suggestions
based off my opinion. I think you make great videos but my suggestion is
that when your filming a video don't cut out the mistakes you make.
Everyone makes mistakes but if you say the wrong thing its alright. When
you start cutting and splicing a lot of the video it tends to get a little
confusing so like i said it is OK to make mistakes : )
scoobydog411: Have you seen all the tv,s they use ? =)
Random Man: Hook that up to a 250 watt 24v Waeco camping kettle. My one boils 2.5 cup
of water in about 20 mins = 83watts. Lay bets he could make a single cuppa
in 30~40 minutes.
SNUBISM: might be more comfortable hooked to a recumbent trike.
M DiAngelo: Very Informative!!! but this guy talks waaaaaya tooooo much
baboracus: There should be a gym where the patrons get paid for their energy input.
For example if you work out 1 hour for 20W or whatever than that's .02 kWh.
Therefore you get 0.02*0.010 = $0.0002 per hr of working out.......... wow,
Billy Givens: mercury gas ,bad,green?
michael phillips: 5:39 63c for us i think
robotpredator8: so funny,so much muscle "fake"!!
Sand10waterpolo: if I got managed in time 1 min 8 sec and distance was on this stationary
bicycle 1000m.. it is good or not so bad result ?
buzzkillor: @GREENPOWERSCIENCE You'd never get off the grid unless it was a huge gym
full of patrons and nothing else. Exercise in the dark with no music.. ya
know? I've done the math on it before. Even hypothesizing that I've not
only got treadmills and bikes going, but also have tied pulleys (like on a
universal) and other weight equipment into the power generation. People are
feeble and love energy. But, still a good gimmick. Give people a card that
records their "green" rating.
Mark Jones: @GREENPOWERSCIENCE the gym i use to go to had some old running machines
that had no electric they use to just work by friction inside of them the
faster you fan the faster they went and the slower the slower they went no
buttons to control the speed just your legs lol
Zachstar2000: That was an awesome demo! And thank you for the detailed info on the safety
of Grid Tie inverters and their difference from normal inverters.
