Automaton Cyclist

Ugears wooden mechanical DIY 3D puzzle Automaton Cyclist

The Automaton Cyclist is the newest addition to the Ugears automatons family. The Cyclist is inspired by classic Tour de France chronicles. Become a champion modeler as you master the frames, pedals and gears that help the Cyclist achieve maximum performance. Our signature Ugears design makes this outstanding model just as much fun to build as it is to display.

Featuring a racing bicycle with leg-pumping rider, this 3D puzzle is made from high-quality laser-cut plywood. From base to crown, the gears, cranks and pedals move in harmony with the rider to complete this stunning one-of-a-kind trophy.

When you assemble this automaton you will have hours of fun and learn about the magic of mechanical movement. See how the cyclist, the quintessential endurance athlete, pedals longer when you add a small weight to a slot, due to the action of a flywheel.

You can now purchase the Automaton Cyclist as the perfect gift for any cyclist or cycling enthusiast, or as a rewarding trophy to celebrate your latest accomplishment or those of your loved ones. Like all our models, the Cyclist is made of wood, has moving parts, and is a miracle of mechanical engineering. Experience the joy and pleasure of creating something extraordinary with your own hands. Set your sights on victory!
