Desert Deb and others. On the subject of human powered pedal power machinery please do yourself a favor and go look at lowtechmagazine.com

There is considerable data in a good article. Why spend time re-inventing the wheel. (sorry for the pun) Instead look at what has already been developed then either copy it or improve on it. The article explains what works and what sometimes does not work and why. One innovation I saw was how to convert a regular bicycle wheel to a mass flywheel to store some energy. Lots of good ideas.
