    Hey, great shots. Hope you had a good time. What is the bike in the pic, top row, last picture on the right?

    I like this recumbent. Looks pretty compact for a recumbent. What is it? Does it fold?

    The bike in question is my friend Paul Cottle's Giant Halfway which was designed by Mike Burrows.

    And yes! We had a brilliant time! Thanks!

    There were many folding trikes & recumbents, but this leaning Tripendo trike doesn't fold

    Is it my eyes, or has it got open forks? IE only one fork blade and one chainstay. I remember there was a trend for open fork bikes in the late 90s (?) Does it come out of that.

    Or is it just my eyes?

    No, your eyes aren't deceiving you, they made several different versions, some with twin sided rear frame, I believe. But never owned one so I may be wrong.
