Crank Forward?

Hello.
Has anyone expressed interest in creating a sub forum about crank forward bikes?
Electra Townie
Giant Suede
Raleigh Gruv
Rans Fusion, Cruz, Dynamic, Zenetik
Trek Sole Ride
Del Sol Low Boy
are some names made in that style.

Whoa! Someone should have gotten back to you on this by now. The interest in those bikes is not really that great here on the forums. We see some questions on the Townie once in a while, but the rest, not so much. The closest you'll find is on Alt.

Thanks for your input.

Giant Stiletto

Giant Revive

Schwinn Stingray

Schwinn Spoiler

Worksman Y3K

and numerous "Kustom" built choppers

http://bikerodnkustom.com

(Great pics on this site, but it has no forum.)

And , my Daughter's Fiberglass Ladies Bicycle / Electric Moped

Prototype, with a front end based on the Kenworth , (the original Spoiler).

Mellisa's bike is now, or has been, on the first page of results in a Google search for "Ladies Bicycle".

http://mywilson.homestead.com/gallery69.html

I would like to request the formation of a separate forum for crank-forward or semi-recumbent bikes.

Mellisa designed the "Mini-Kenworth" in 1991.
Schwinn stole the name "Spoiler" , along with the frame geometry.

Thanks for reading my post to this forum.

There's not been much interest on BF in Crank Forward Bikes. If the interest is ever there, we might get a forum some day.

Take it to the hybrid forum. It is withering on the vine looking for something new (or old) to discuss.
