The Ucan2 Freestyle BMX HandCycle


UCan2 handcycle suits any color.

The Atomic Zombie UCan2 freestyle BMX handcycle is an indestructible yet lightweight hand powered BMX style trike that will take any abuse your young riders can throw at it. This DIY handcycle is very easy to operate and includes a back pedal brake in the ergonomic and effective hand crank system. Styled after a freestyle BMX, the UCan2 handcycle looks cool, rather than looking like a special needs trike.

Lightweight and durable frame design.

Our DIY handcycle uses 20 inch BMX wheels with 48 spokes, so it can take the punishment of a skate park, even with a passenger standing on the rear. The robust and lightweight square tube frame allows a person to easily lift the bike.

Stopping is simple with a coaster brake.

Our simple-to-build steering system offers a full range of turning and incorporates the brakes into the same hand powered crank that drives the trike forward. Stopping is accomplished by turning the hand crank in the opposite direction to activate the smooth running coaster brake system. The hand grips use the same bearings found in standard bicycle pedals, so they are extremely low friction and easy to hold on to.

Adapt the design to the rider’s needs.

The DIY handcycle gives the rider a great upper body workout, and is just as capable as any standard leg pedaled BMX bike. The foot rest can be configured for a strap if needed, and the seat can be altered to suit the needs of your rider. Everything about our handcycle plan is easily customizable, so you can alter the design to suit your own needs.

BMX wheels give this handcycle a “cool” factor.

Our easy-to-follow hand powered trike plan uses only the most basic parts and tools to create a unique handcycle that looks as cool as any BMX two wheeler. All of the components can be purchased at a bicycle shop or taken from another bicycle so you can build a hand powered trike for a fraction of the cost of a factory produced model.

UCan2 is an affordable handcycle trike.

Crank it down the street and keep up with the gang, or try your skill at the skate park. The UCan2 can maneuver around obstacles, and the handcycle will last for many years, needing very little maintenance. Every part of the smooth running front wheel drive transmission is made using only standard bicycle components.

Rear cargo carrying.

The rear of the handcycle has plenty of room for a cargo box to carry your gear, school bag, or even pick up some groceries. The UCan2 hand powered DIY trike can carry hundreds of pounds, so riders of any size can enjoy a great upper body workout.

A practical and stylish handcycle trike for all ages.

Carrying one or more passengers is no problem at all for the sturdy UCan2 handcycle, so you can give your buddies a ride to the park or tow them using a rope on their skateboards. Atomic Zombie’s easy-to-build DIY handcycle is as good on the road as it is off the road, so there is no terrain that cannot be conquered by hand power. Work your upper body on a cool-looking and lightweight handcycle that you can build from our plans.
