Justification for all these bikes

Finally a reprieve for having all these bikes in the garage. The wife now reluctantly agrees. All but one of the kids came home this week and we were able to put them all on a ride. My son is pretty good with the camera and was able to put together a short movie. We all had a blast making this thing.

Cool!

Is that a family or a precision drill team? Do you need to add a bike for the missing kid?

You need a couple LWB 'bents. And a tandem trike. And a couple delta trikes to hook together in a train. And some fairings. And a streamliner.

Where are you? Recumbent dealers are here and there, generally in larger cities.

The local recumbent shop was trying to sell ElliptiGOs, too, but then they found that the company was selling them direct for less than the wholesale cost. Not a good business model.
