Reasonably Priced Crank Forward
I want to get a bicycle for exercizing my dogs for the show ring. And I'm sure they will love a run once in a while.
I already bought a scooter for this purpose, but I'm finding it precarious, and my knees aren't holding up well to the constant pushing. See, not all my dogs like to pull, some of them run along side.
First I thought a recumbent tricycle would be great for this, then I spotted a Rans Crank Forward bike. However, at $1,000+, it's as much as the Sun trike I was looking at, and more than I want to spend for the occassional running the dogs.
So, does anybody have any recommendations of a lower priced Crank Forward bike? I'm hoping to find one around $500.
Also, I happen to have 2 bicycles already becides the Willy Scooter, a Bridgestone CB, which would work if I hadn't gained weight over the years, and a 1978 FUJI S10S that I'm not even going to try to get on until I lose 150 pounds.
If anybody has a Sacco Cart they don't want, that would be ideal.
