Rans Dynamik

I'm considering getting a Rans crank forward Dynamik Pro.
I was wondering how they handled the trail.
Anyone tried one out?

You won't find many recumbent owners here. Best ask your question over at the Recumbent forum as I'm sure you'll find someone who takes their bikes off-road.

Thanks for the reply. The Rans Dynamik is'nt a recumbent.
It's a crank forward, the pedals are a little forward of the seat and it has a long wheelbase.

Recumbents and Crank Forward's are two different types of bikes.

Does that mean it's a kit plane too?
I don't think they are the "world leader" in crank forwards yet.
I like the more relaxed riding position of a crank forward.
I've ridden my wifes Rans citi on flat single track along the Rio Grande. I
have never had a chance to ride their "off road" bike on real trails yet.
