Oh, where is Mooky when ya need him???
ReBike (RIP) was a low-end maker. Construction was of heavy mild steel and unknown componentry. There was at least 3 models, including a delta trike. Although they were classed as 'bents' at the time, they would fit into the current 'semi-bent' category better (along with Giant Townie, Quetzal, and a few others.) Seating positions were fairly upright and they had a hip support in lieu of a full backrest. In 2000 or thereabouts, they were bought out by Sears. A few made it into stores, but didn't sell as well as expected, whereupon they sort of faded away.
