    Hello.
    Has anyone expressed interest in creating a sub forum about crank forward bikes?

    Giant Suede
    Raleigh Gruv
    Rans Fusion, Cruz, Dynamic, Zenetik
    Trek Sole Ride
    Del Sol Low Boy

    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

    (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.
