Cyclone, RIP

I was just getting ready to order a HPM Cyclone; I wrote up an initial description of what features I wanted and e-mailed it off to them. However, they replied that they are not making Cyclones any more.

So, if not Cyclone, what?

I am looking for a sturdy, well-built machine (I'm definately in the 'Clyde' range), a tadpole configuration, and an adjustable boom. (The latter because (a) everyone in the neighborhood will want to try it, I'm sure and (b) I may sometime want to lend it to someone who wants to try a recumbent before investing in one for him/herself.)

Suggestions are welcome.

Greenspeed maybe or ICE?

You might also want to use the Wanted to Buy section on Bentrider Online. Perhaps there's a Cyclone needing a new home.
