1. If we turn the pedals forward, the bicycle will move forward.
2. If we turn the pedals backward, the bicycle will move forward. This is very practical and more efficient, because we would use a different group of muscles while resting the ones we used during the usual pedal rotation.
3. If we stop turning the pedals, the bicycle will keep on moving forward by inertance.
4. On high rises, the pedals can be moved forward-backward. By doing so, we remain in the area of the greatest torque and the bicycle will keep on moving forward no matter which way we are turning the pedals.
TWO-DIRECTION MECHANISM is doing all of this automatically. Other parts of the bicycle, such as frame, brakes, transmission, wheels, chain and chain-wheels etc., remain unchanged. And so, we get improvement, along with good, already existing solutions.
If used with internal combustion engine, the two-direction mechanism would replace the crankshaft. For the drive of the vehicle it would enable the use of overall torque made by the piston. That would save the fuel, which is very significant, considering today’s expenses of searching and exploiting of oil.
Finally, keep in mind that the video shows the functional model of TWO-DIRECTION MECHANISM. Its shape could be in many ways readjusted for actual needs, while retaining all of its characteristics. I already have a complete projet for the bicycle. For internal combustion engine, I have a project containing the main characteristics.
