Tells me a little something about recumbent bikes/trikes. After 28 'bent years for me - I wonder if the term "parade bikes" is still being used to describe recumbents?
I guess some things never change- no wonder I still get the "What the 'H' is that???"
I find this very interesting and funny at the same time.
I don't know if it makes you feel any better, but I do
see 'bents along my commute route here in Portland. Even in the green bike boxes.
