Solar RV cycling log on July 29. .... Constant pressure on a near vertical belt being grabbed... and pulled down Behind the knees With the other leg doing all that it can
This seems like a gigantic step forward.
interesting experiments have led to this the last several days. The logs from those days may or may not be posted.
The experiments and experiences in cluded the idea Of Turning the crank with the arms . This was a very stimulating and useful model. And for A-day although the power output was horribly lower 70 human watts per hour it was a very stimulating idea. And it was good that it happened. What was discovered later and confirmed today it seems is that The opposing legs cannot be of equal power. The downward leg must be of greater power both due to the human muscles and quite possibly gravity as well which is working against the upper leg and the advantage of the downward leg.
What seems to have a merged to is great prophet, a continuous belt, the 1st thought was of a pull down towel arrangement sometimes seen in restroom, but improve when it matures in to a continuous wide belt and the challenge for the body is to keep gently wiping downward pressure on that belt. And asking of the other leg constantly to do all that it can while acknowledging that can do a lot less than the downward leg. ....
