Hi-

I've just read an article on the Rans website that they're planning on adding an alternate configuration of their semi-recumbent Fusion(I'm an extremely happy owner of the "first" Fusion, which has the 26"/20" wheel setup, beautifully curved frame tubes, and long riser bar). The "alternate" Fusion will have a shorter riser bar, straight frame tubes, and dual 650c wheels. You'll be able to stand up on this version, not to climb hills, but to do fun stuff like hopping curbs or adjusting/"airing" your fanny! Rans says that this alternate version of the Fusion, as well as some other fun offerings for it, will be coming available this fall.

Here's a link to the Rans article on the new Fusion model:
The Fusion Evolution

Now I've gotta ask myself if this new version(of the bike I already love) is going to offer a different but equally(or more?!) fun ride than my current Fusion...? What do you guys think? MadPogue?

Here's a pic of the new version coming soon....whadd'ya think?

Have fun!
