I am an undergraduate Mechanical Engineering student at the
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. My project group is designing
a bicycle to be driven by a set of bevel gears instead of the normal
sproket and chain assembly. We have been searching for data on the forces
a human leg is capable of exerting upon a bicycle pedal. This information
would greatly help us in choosing the best gear set for our project. In
addition we would like to include the data and cite the source in our
final project report. If anyone has any information or knows where we
might obtain the data would you please email me?
Thank you for your time and patience, Dennis How (how@uiuc.edu).
