    Hi-

    Has anyone heard about or seen the new upcoming lwb from Haluzak? I just saw a pic on their website, and it is very cool looking! Kinda like a low rider 'bent...looks like you're sitting about 16-17" off the ground...and look at that fork angle! My local 'bent dealer is a Haluzak dealer...'can't wait to see if they get one in their showroom...I would love to get a chance to test ride this baby!

    Here's the link to Haluzak's website, and, if I'm successful in posting the pic, the pic is from their site also: Bicycles from Haluzak

    Well, my local bent dealer just replied to my email inquiry, and pretty much told me that this new lwb project is dead in the water. He also told me that the company's only dealing with framesets now, and that they almost shut down last year, due to poor sales.

    Rats! I was up for this, too. My dealer said "only trikes now - and even that is questionable". It's a "one-man-show". I've e-mailed (before I saw Sukispop's reply) Haluzak to see what they say. I would guess it would've been too expensive for me anyway. Big companies (i.e. Rans) can afford to trim down the profit margin.

    "Interbike" is coming up soon in Vegas. Maybe you can check it out for similar low-rider prototypes.
