Ed Atkins has built a cool
front-wheel-drive low racer type recumbent. He wrote: "I designed a moving bottom bracket front wheel drive lowracer recumbent bike, and offer plans on my site for this bike.
The bike is called the atomBLASTER, and can be built as either a dual 20" or dual 26" bike.
One guy is building a dual 700c bike!"
I asked Ed about the gearing and he responded: "I currently am running a 3 front/7 rear cluster, for 21 gears total. Since the swinging front end is essentially the rear end of a mountain bike, rotated, I can use whatever gear combos are available on a DF bike. This bike is a BEAST doing hills. It's like riding a leg press."
