Side Wheel Attachment and Its Patent
Side Wheel Attachment for removably attaching an auxiliary side wheel to a cycle or bike. The side wheel attachment comprises a single structural rod which is folded in the desired shape, i.e. forms a helical torsion spring. In natural unbiased condition, the first and second ends of the spring rod extend generally perpendicularly to one another. The first end of the spring is inversely U-shaped and tangentially engages by its web the rear axle of the cycle or bike where it can be fixed after adjusting its vertical position relative to the cycle or bike.
Side wheel attachment means 18 is made from a single structural rod folded to the desired shape. Indeed, U-shaped end 20 and auxiliary wheel spindle 24 integrally form the two extremities of helical spring 22. Therefore, side wheel attachment means 18 can be easily constructed and installed as a result of their structural simplicity.
