Greg; have you found someone to manufacturer your bike? I would love to buy one if it is affordable for me?
I am very much interested in getting one of your invention, the Quadracycle. It is just what I’ve been looking for . a four wheel bicycle with suspension. It looks like I could enclose it to make itmore aerodynamic and keep out the weather. I need one that I can drive year round up here in Maine.
Thank you for your time.
hi ,do you retail these ,and have any ever came to the uk ,, brilliant ,,,
Greg my name is Danny I live in Fruitland Idaho and love to hunt in fact we have hunted the same area for about 30 years. This year the U.S.F.S. have closed all the roads to motor vehicles the terrain is ruff & steep at times and all kinds of weather & snow and we need to carry rifles, packs & at times animals,travel millage is 4 to 5 miles round trip. Do you have any suggestions as to how your Animas QC can be adapted for our use, any thoughts would be appreciated. Danny
ps some of us have back hip & knee issues how big of factor is this?
Looks like an awesome ride! I would buy one!
are you selling plans so i can build one myself? i’m on a low budget these days.
do the gears work with the motor?
what kind of speeds are you getting?
what are you using for batteries, and distance?

I realy like your QUADRACYCLE
I think this would be the most perfect for my World trip.
And my wife could travel with me together…
On the other Hand it would gif you the best possible promotion around the world for your QUADRACYCLE.
Good luck for your “BABY” Projekt to find Investor or reliable licens taker
God bless you
Two years ago 7 of us cycled from one coast of England to the other on mountain bikes following Wainwright’s Way (predominantly across the mountains, hills and off road) Anyway, we need another challenge and we have been discussing and looking at Quadracycles as an alternative and gruelling option to a long sponsored cycle, possibly coast to coast again.
After trawling the internet I found your video on YouTube of your Quadracyle and found the design to be intrigueing. Ideally we would want to build the bikes ourselves, so my first question would be to ask if you have supplied the plans for your cycles to anyone else and if so how much would it cost us considering we need to try and keep our costs as low as possible as the challenge is always for charity.
I would like to correspond with you about an idea I have related to moving the quadracycle into production. Just thinkin…
Sure, I am interested in any ideas.
Thanks for writing
Here is my thinking:
Rhoades has done a pretty good job of creating an industrial design 4-wheel product historically. They are currently looking to expand their manufacturing and distribution. I can see growth in this segment especially with the green initiatives becoming so popular in business today (at least appearing ‘green’ for marketing image purposes).
I really like the beauty of your product!
BUT I wonder what would a partnership with a bike manufacturer, like Specialized, bring to the table?
So here is the bottom line: What about you working with Rhoades initially to build your Quadracycle design and then approach Specialized design engineers for their twist?
My concern is that this market might grow but then get saturated with knockoffs that compete on price only without the horsepower of a strongly marketed company that can retain market against competition..
Thanks for reading my two-cents.
Wow, I don’t know if the market is expanding….I would like to think
it is, but the Animas is much more complex than a Rhoades. There just
isn’t anything like it, it seems to be a new market segment distanced
from the others. I have tried contacting various bike and ATV
producers, but no responses. At this time I am still trying to improve
on my quad design, and to do durability testing.
I am really honored that you see the beauty in our product, and I know
a bike co would have some twists on my design and marketing, but I do
not have the resources to get a production line going.
Lots of respect for your build first off. I have been aching to build something like this for some time now, but I haven’t been able to figure out how to get it off the ground. I’ve made lots of plans in my head and on paper, but I’ve never executed them. I want something that can be used on road, as well as off situations. I even went as far as to attempt to make a 4×4 model, but that proved to be quite ambitious. Then I saw your bike, and it’s just about exactly what I am looking to make. So, I have a question. Are your plans public? Or do they cost money, and if so, how much? Could you possibly send me more detailed pictures of the bike? I’m really curious how you did your drivetrain and suspension.
I love your design for the quadracycle.
I’ll be going to Burning Man this year and would love one…
I’m wondering if you could sell me the plans for me to build one?
Wishing you open roads and clear skies,
love the quad!! Send one to Perth lol
I am a parapeligic due to a motorcycle crash, however I still can make the motion of pedaling a bike however. I’ve lost the ability to balance.I really am interested in purchasing a quadracycle that you reccomend to me. Also, in the price?
Congrats and Good Luck!
Congrats and Good Luck! It’s about time people start thinking out of the box and the popularization of an advanced bike is long-overdue IMO. Perhaps a future improvement or upgrade could be transparent ‘cockpits’ to protect folks from inclement weather. Safety is a big issue, especially on winding roads — I foresee a day (hopefully) where cars will have some sort of receiver that alerts them to a signal that bikes and joggers can broadcast automatically as they ride or jog.
Please keep me informed if you ever start selling your quadracycles. I would be interested in becoming a distributor in Canada. I already import from other countries and am well connected in the outdoor industry.
Thanks and kind regards,
I saw your HPV through treehugger.com. Where can I go to see one and test drive? Do you have a catalog? How about pricing? I love the all terrain concept. It seems like a versatile machine. Any information you can forward is appreciated.
Hi can you give me the cost for the Quadracycle and if you have any suppliers in Ireland / Europe
It seems to me that if you are having difficulty with a ‘buy-out’ of the design patent or striking a royalties deal with a producer then ’single use’ stipulated sales of design blueprints could be an economical way to profit from your time spent in designing.
I (for one) would be interested in buying detailed build plans with a list of specialty parts suppliers (hydraulic brakes, electric motor and batteries).
Food for thought,
How do I buy one?
Would you sell a prototype at all?
Gostei muito do seu quadriciclo. tenho interesse em quadriciclos movido a pedal.
A melhor turma!!! huh
I really enjoyed meeting you at the Solar Concert last weekend. I am an avid cyclist and cycle for transportation as much as is feasible. I was impressed by the versatile design of your bike, usable on and off road, and it’s adaptability to motorized applications as well. At some point in the future, I may well be in the market for such a vehicle as well.
Been looking for a Quadcycle,,,,ran into your video on Youtube,,,
do you sell these,,,or the plans
How much does the quadracycles cost? Or are they even for sale? I would love to have on to use when we go on BMX Bicycle trips to use around the tracks, or around the several State Parks near my house.
Look very good, Greg. Congratulations!
The frame looks complicated, which I suspect makes it tedious to build. That could impact your selling price. I have a BikeE recumbent; one of the attractions is the very simple design. I can easily imagine a quadracycle version of it.
Your videos didn’t describe your electric drive or solar plans. I have a lot of experience with EVs. Based on my experience with the Swiss Twike and a couple electric bikes, my suggestion would be avoid wheel motors and put the electric motor on a jackshaft with a chain and dérailleur to the back wheel. Small light motors are more efficient and effective with a shiftable “transmission”. Otherwise, you are stuck with either a low top speed, or insufficient torque for hills or obstacles.
Beware of using exotic superbatteries, unless cost and short battery life are not a concern. The Twike used “old fashioned” nicads, which turned out to be a good choice. They easily supply very high currents, last a long time (some are now 10 years old), and aren’t ruined by cheap chargers (the kind almost everyone uses).
I’m delighted that a production version of your Animas quadracycle may at last become available! I enjoyed the old video clip years ago, and have hoped that there would be a follow-up. I tried to contact you at that time, but, as I recall, only reached your brother. It seemed that production was not imminent, and I looked at other options.
About eight or nine years ago, I purchased a “QuadraSport” model made in Indiana , and have found it incredibly useful and enjoyable. The manufacturer, Ed Teegarten (sp?), manages to keep his production costs down (the QuadraSport model is currently listed for about $1800); the design is fairly simple, and the quality is excellent. Their website is
I’ve used my QuadraSport to get 90 year-olds as well as youngsters around on forest roads and meadows, and on city streets. It’s not set up for off-roading, however, and your Animas quadracycle would be a welcome addition to the available options.
I usually keep my Quadracycle Sport near Portland, (although sometimes it’s in Seattle ). I’d be happy to show it to you if you are in the area. I would also love to see your Animas in action if you have demonstrations available to potential buyers.
I hope you are successful in bringing the Animas to production. Please put me on the list of potential buyers!
I have been inventing many things including(not building) pedal powered vehicle for decades. I love what you have done.
I have great Ideas and would freely share them with you. It has been a the biggest dream of mine for over 20 years to build a pedal powered recumbent that is amphibious. That would be the bomb(the Snorcommuter Dive boat). I joined the Human powered vehicle association 20 plus years ago and received their technical monthly publication, So I am really into this vehicle that you have produced.
You are onto a great thing here.
Bravo vraiment BRAVO ça c’est une voiturette développée et bien pensée (incorporez le système du vélo électrique et elle fera une vraie révolution) Félicitations
Okay…..I want one!!! That looks awesome.
How nice would it be to see half of the city population riding these awesome machines:)
To all the fans of Animas Quad: This is an AWESOME ride. I was priveledged enough to get to go for a spin. Soooooooooo fun!!!!!!
Looks like great fun. Great video, too,
Good Morning Greg,
I found you Quadra Cycle vis the Treehugger website. Question; would you be interested in exhibiting your Quadra Cycle at our expo? I think Amimas would be a great addition to the show and I would like to send you a proper prospectus with all of the expo details. Please advise an e-mail that I can use.
I look forward to hearing from you,
I am interested in your Animas Quadracyle. I am wondering if you can build one like the Rhoades Car Sedan with cargo space in the rear and a roof for solar panels?
How much would your Quadracyle COST? I would be interested.
Congratulations on designing and building the Quad.
I wish you every success with the project, and hope that we see them in use in the near future.
why don’t you make a single seat model for people to use on ATV TRAILS?
Would like a unit myself. Would propose that I promote the heck out of
you to my 18000 + subscribers in trade
Any pics or specs on the elec. model ?
The Animas Quadracycle is Very cool I work as a bike mechanic at a Trailside bike shop in Rocheport Missouri on the Katy Trail we rent out quad recumbents for use on the trail. They are two sun ez1’s joined with a kit. It is a fun novel way for people to enjoy the trail. Some people love them some don’t because they are heavy and require more effort. I’m very interested in electric bicycle and it is now officially leagal to ride them on the Katy Trail. Many people could benefit from electrics and what a great way to help reduce global warming.
Your design looks excellent. I know with the quads we rent that they are unstable when turning when only one rider is on them. Does your suspension and/or geometery eliminate this problem on your quadracycle?
I met a guy who had built his own electric bike the he said could go 80 miles on a charge. The bike was a schwinn 7 speed cruiser he bought at wal-mart (kind of a low end bike but functional) and he had a nice front hub motor and used lithium phosphate batteries inside a pelican (very strong plastic case) mounted on a standard rear rack.. He said the whole setup was aroun $800. It seemed like a very enjoyable way to see the wonderful Katy Trail. If you haven’t heard about it is the longest rails to trail conversion in the US and will go across the entire state of Missouri. Very senic and follows the Missouri River for much of it. If you can get to Missouiri it’s a great summer ride. Many people can ride it in under a week but I would recommend more time to explore. http://www.pebblepublishing.com/complete_katy_trail_guidebook.htm
Can you send me more info or links to your Quadracycle? Are you selling them? Have you thought about addind some weather enclosure like a jeep soft cover? Do you need help marketing them in Missouri? We sold two of our three rental quad’s this season (apr. – oct.). The local mechanic / guru who trained me might be interested in helping. He also builds frames. His site is www.hartsburgcycledepot.com
Is there more info available about the quadracycle?
I like what u have built.
Please contact me
My name is Misha
Dear Greg Fisher ,
My name is Steven and I am 15 years old .I am from Greece .I work about a year on a project on how
making a four wheel bicycle but i couldn’t find too much ( we have no this bikes in greece only some for renting )
I saw your video .Animas is awesome . It is the best bike I ‘ve ever seen .I belive you could help meif you could send me some plans or some tips on what I have to do to make a four wheel bike .I don’t want to copy you but I want some informations on what materials I have to use .
Please write me back soon ,
Your best fan
May we mentor you to bring your electric assist version or single human powered version to our alternative fuel event at www.saltflats.com in Sept? No passengers are allowed, okay? You can qualify for the 130 mph 1 mile course. Bonneville is where people remember what you did longer than any place on earth.
Speedy Environmental Regards,
I just ran across the videos of your quad. I love the design. I’ve been thinking of getting something like that for the wife and myself to ride together. On bikes, we never ride together. I’m always way ahead and getting frustrated. She’s behind me, and getting frustrated. You know how it goes.
A year or more back I saw a couple guys on a quad ride by my house, I bet it was you.
Anyway, I’d love to see the thing some time. I don’t have the money to buy one now, or even in the immediate future. So I don’t want to waste your time, but if you’d be willing, I’d love to have a look at it and chat w/ you some time.
