    Wal-Mart will sell RECUMBENTS !!!

    Today, a spokesperson for Wal-Mart said, "We hope to attract young people to cycling with this cool new design." According to Wal-Mart the benefits of their recumbent are:

    # 16-inch wheel for unique low-profile riding fun
    # Adjustable 3-position seat
    # Durable, weather-resistant decals
    # Bright colors
    # Quick and easy assembly
    # Made in the USA


    You can see a picture of the new Wal-Mart recumbent here - http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...30660804602498

    10.5 lbs sounds too good to be true. Is this a streetgoing recumbent? All I see on the website is an exercycle which is recumbent. Could the true wieght be 10.5 kgs? I thought you were talking about a bicycle not a 16" big wheel. It is a recumbent though.

    I love the color scheme- it looks racy! The UCI should change the rules and let Lance Armstrong ride one in the next Tour de France :-)

    Remember how much fun you had on those as a kid? Our house was at the top of a hill, on a dead end street, we would spend hours riding down the hill. I can still remember the spinouts and skined knees...

    cycletourist, you also found a recumbent for the fiexed gear crowd...

    Is there anyone out there who can ride a fixed gear recumbant?

    Oh come on Klein, the Demo 9 isn't for everyone, and recumbant riders are people too.

    laugh not!

    I have seen these machines in action. They go like greased lightening - so fast indeed that at times they seem out of control!
