It is a crank forward, and yes, I took a test ride on one. The way the seat can be positioned is ingenious. Up, down, back, forward, adjust the back rest position. Extremely comfortable. One of the slowest bikes you can buy, but it gets people on bikes that would normally be so uncomfortable that they won't ride. On hills they are very slow, but not that hard to pedal. You just slowly go right up hills that you think you can't ride over.
They also make an electric assist model. Which I think is great. Get people out riding bikes in the park who thought they'd never be able to bike again.
I thought it was a really neat design.
