Maya Pedal Bicycle Mill
Bicimáquinas are pedal-powered machines that assist with a variety of jobs in the home, on the farm, on the road and in small businesses. Each bicimáquina is handmade in Maya Pedal’s workshop using a combination of old bikes, concrete, wood, and metal. Maya Pedal’s Bicycle Mill is a bicycle machine adapted to fit a hand powered grinding mill or a corn thresher. The Mill function has the capacity to mill 3 lbs. per minute of any type of grain. The most common use is for milling yellow maize, soya beans, and coffee.
