The Bike Wheel Bow
Darren Hall has a tutorial on how to make your own bow from a bike wheel over on Instructables. He says there are some good advantages to this bow like. Rigid frame.
Good power output.
No knock required on arrows.
Longer draw than a standard bow.
So very! light.
Simple to build.
Cheap – cost £2.50 for proper catapult rubber preferred by the Chinese apparently (big following of catapults).
Pimp this up and she would be awesome – I kinda like her dirty and visceral though.
Easily shoot 20 meters.
Would work well for short range hunting of small game or fish.
Ammo carried on the frame.
