Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

If the Recumbent forum had a Pub 51, this would go there.
So would discussions of the Elliptigo. http://www.elliptigo.com/
But, I would like to see a video of someone 'driving' that amf-probe. An adult, preferably.

I have the feeling that it's RWS. Ugh.

Doesn't look retro like the AMC, but this is much better:

They come with a certificate for two free lessons from Stirling Moss.

You simply climb down and in. The opening is quite large. The ones pictured are using 'kayak covers' to close in most of the opening, leaving just enough space for the rider's head to stick out. You can also get an optional detachable roof. Both can store inside the body. Between the two, they keep the rider dry when riding in rain.
