This post gave me an idea- what if you had an interchangeable bicycle driven system that could wash clothes, produce power, grind food, maybe even run a small hydraulic system for wood splitting, or maybe a small sawmill. The possibilities are there, I would think, especially if you could mke the system modular and interchangeable.

Where do I subscribe to a thread now? The place at the bottom of the page is gone.

I want one too! They are still in the testing phase so not available yet. :( They're projecting a year or so before retail availability. They have a Facebook page if you're into that sort of thing. http://www.facebook.com/GiraDora or you get on the mailing list for updates by e-mailing cabunocdesign@gmail.com

There is a NGO based in Guatemala that are making similar machines for bikes. Maybe they could purchased through them?
