Bender?

Just came across this odd piece of machinery. Has anybody seen/ridden one? According to the website, it's a full-suspension, carbon fiber, all terrain, very cool, recumbent touring bicycle.

I have not seen one first hand, and I know nothing of the company or the builders. But it is a very interesting bike. Take a look at Ebay Item number: 7103887143, it looks as the builder is selling one of the bikes.

The bike is great.
I recently bought one two weeks ago.
I'm having a great time. It's like Christmas when I was a kid.
I am constantly amased at the attention to detail. The refinements they've incorporated into the final product are unparalleled. Can I say enough?
I'm looking forward to many years of riding on this bike.
No question, it'll be up to the challenge.
The carbon fiber has a beautiful snake skin like quality. I'd recommend it to anyone.
I'll have to include a picture when I figure out how to do that.
