    Wowzers, that's a nice bike. I'm recumbent ignorant so please don't spare the details - make, model etc.

    Mrs. Cranky is ridin' in style.

    I like those new X-frame Suns. Much nicer looking bikes than their old models. Comfortable riding too.

    And how can you afford to buy a bike when your windows are in such need of new paint?

    Quite obviously a matter of having his priorities straight.

    Thank You. Here are the specs. http://www.sunbicycles.com/sun/index.html (listed under new products).

    This bike fit her needs for a low step-over frame and low BB height. The bike allows her to plant her feet at stops which not all the 'bents do (she's only 5'3").

    All the money I save on sensless things like "Home Maintainance" goes into the bike fund.

    Is Easy Racers going to make a Titanium version? In which case the bike fund is even more a priority.

    That would be the Ti Rush @ $5900

    Mrs. Cranky done good! A very stylish ride.

    You are a fortunate man. My better half doesn't have the least bit of interest in 2-wheeled pursuits at this point.

    Congratulations to Mrs. Cranky!

    My LBS has exactly the same bike out on the floor right now.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I rented one of the new X-3 trikes and rode it on the Root River Trail in Minnesota last September. That was fun. If I could sneak one into my garage undetected by Goldberry, I'd do it.

    Why it's a bicycle, of course!

    Sorry TWL but I couldn't resist.

    It's a Sun X-1, 16/20, steel frame, ...new model as of late last year I believe.
    It's the first one we've seen and it totally blew us away. It fits my 5'3" wife to a "T".

    Very nice looking bent.
    Also looks like you hijacked the cable box.
    More cost savings measures for bike accessories??

    Very nice ride. I was considering one of those when looking at the EZ-1 or Cycle Genius Sparrow. They didn't have one in stock, but had the X-2 aluminum. If the X-1 rolls as easy as the X-2, you're going to have trouble keeping up with your wife.
    I like these handlebar mirrors.
