    Semi - recumbent

    Just picked up this months Cycling Weekly, and there's a picture of a Giant EZ-B, described as a 'semi-recumbent' - anyone seen one? Can a bike be a semi-recumbent?

    Looks interesting.

    I just received a copy of Giant's catelog, and it shows this bicycle, but only in a drawing. There are no photos in their catelog. I'm not sure it has been released yet.

    Sorry the photo's in Cycling Plus not Cycling Weekly, with the promise of a marketing campaign to come...

    Is this the same thing you're referring to? Just went to Giant's website to drool at new models and this is on their homepage. I guess there was also an article in NY Times about it.

    Hmm, I've seen the bike of similar anatomy once around here. Maybe it's something else?
    Prepare for the worst - that way any surprise will be a pleasant one.

    It looks a lot like the (I think it was called) ReBike or something along those lines.

    Yes that's the one - so does it class as a recumbent, and will it sell?
