Any rowing type "bikes" out there?
I found a site this AM for what I call a row bike. That is, almost anything except standard pedalling. This one from the Sherer company was a recumbent tadpole trike with two vertical arms/levers sticking up from the frame. the rider would push alternately on the levers with the motions converted to rotary torque for the rear wheel. Saw another a decade ago in So Cal with full torso rowing action, fized feet, sliding seat and all. She (the rider) said it gave her an excellent workout. It steered with a flexible link in the main frame beam. Any one out there have one? And can post pictures? Comments? Efficiency? Style?
