    What would you call these bikes?

    These are a couple of interesting creations I saw a few years ago at our local Second Saturday art festival. I think the second bike may be called a "bounce bike", but I'm not sure.

    A bike with one or both wheels that have an offset hub I've always heard referred to as a "bucking bronco".

    Ingo was a particular brand name. I'd go with "bounce bike" for that one. Looks like it's nearly got too much rolling resistance to actually work like one, though.

    That other one, we call a "recumbent".

    I know it has a recumbent design, but I thought there might be another name for it since it is so unusual.

    Hopefully the creators of that bike see this thread and chime in
