I pulled up behind this vehicle yesterday while running some errands and took a picture because I was so tickled by the design, not to mention jealous over how much easier that would be on my back. In an interesting bit of synchronicity I just came across this article in Wired about bikes that are not usable in the Tour de France… and there’s this model at #6.
Despite what seems like a more pleasant riding experience – and I’m just guessing here since I haven’t tried one – I don’t see a lot of recumbents around. Is that a reflection on their popularity in general, the nature of the riding areas around here, our average demographic or just my head in the sand?
