Pedal away from the peloton and smell victory with this latest addition to the UGears classics. The new Automaton Cyclist is a bold and intricate model that embodies the competitive spirit of the classic Tour De France bike series. The assembly of this winning model cycles you away from the pit of boredom and propels who you into the realm of champions.
Echoing the iconic steampunk designs of the UGears brand, this mechanical model features a realistic cyclist that sits atop an elegant trophy adorned with the quintessential vine wreath. The trophy base artfully encases the working flywheel mechanism that allows the model’s determined cyclist to accurately pedal the bicycle and rotate its wheels. With its witty skeletal design, you can visually appreciate the inner workings that propel the Automaton Cyclist.
To work the simple flywheel, easily pull the lever on the side of the model and watch your cyclist move. The flywheel mechanism propels your cyclist using accumulated kinetic energy. To change the momentum of the flywheel, all you need to do is adjust the weight. To increase the weight, this model comes equipped with a special slot that can fit a coin or any metal tidbit. When you add weight, the lever becomes more resistant to pulling; however, the cyclist pedals longer after you stop pumping the lever. The lever is expectedly much easier to pull when there is no weight added, but the cyclist will pedal for a shorter time after you stop pumping. This model is a great hands-on learning device for children to visually and manually see how the flywheel works.
