    Check post #512 in this thread. You‘ll find a rough bill of materials for the main components. Missing are the Arduino, the magnetic encoder + ring, a wheel rim, pedals, an enclosure and cabling.
    The main components can be sourced for 150€. But you need the other stuff to build a working DD-Wheel.

    Sorry, I had no intention of hijacking your thread!
    Probably the best that I start a new thread.

    There still no tested encoder solution expect the one Benu have. As soon as I have received and tested the silicon wheel on the encoder I will report back the result. You should be able to include both the ffb and driver in the Leonardo i think.
