Success! I was looking around at some info this morning, and it's a good thing I decided to chuck the cheesy suspension forks that came with this bike, numerous recalls and reports of failures.

The hell is that thing? A mountain bike/recumbant hybrid?

That's just a homegrown mountain bike-to-recumbent conversion. You can get a commercial product for converting a mountain bike into a FWD recumbent from cruzbike.com

You just graft the forks/downtube/BB from an old roadster onto one of these cheap Y-Frame MTBs. There's a guy who sells plans, but I didn't think I'd need em.

I'm currently putting together a chain tensioner so as to make the front DR functional; using a skate wheel and an aluminum bracket.

I've been thinking of refining this idea. Cheap aluminum Y-Frames are readily available, as are old aluminum roadsters (or even solid-frame MTBs.) By going to an aluminum frame and "boom", and greatly lightening the seat assembly and stem, I think I can bring one of these things in at about 30 pounds. That would put it in the ballpark for many commercial 'bents.

This is my trusty BikeE. I've had it about five years, and it's still going strong. I had to add the electric power assist since my accident in October left me with a weak right leg, and a limp. It's powered by lithium ion polymer batteries, just like your laptop, so it's not too heavy. This gets me to work and everywhere else I have to go. If you'd like more information about this system here is a link to it's creators.

Here's my 2004 Actionbent Jetstream II Under seat steering. I do a partial commute to work every day totalling 30 miles per day. Not much to look at but I enjoy it for all its worth. It's kind of hard to see in those pics but in the seat bag on either side is a speaker with the cd player in the bag.

These new fangled thingamajigs can go faster than heavy velomobiles loaded with PBJs.

Hi,

Here's a pic of my '04 Stratus and my new '05(very slightly used) Greenspeed GT3:

:D

alltheway,
Those recumbents are called a Thingamajigs. The elite Spuds McDoogle racing team rides Thingamajigs. It was made for those who prefer not to draft riders but instead sail down the road ahead.

All Thingamajigs come with an incredibell which is mandatory to warn fellow cyclist that the Thingamajig rider will be passing on the left. There is a large compartment inside the frame that holds a century rides supply of PBJ, a 64 oz bladder full of diet Coke and all tools needed for riding.

In a recent survey at he local skateboard park 98 % of the kids preferred the Thingamajig over the Bacchetta highracer. Must have something to do with the radical low stealth black X-Games look.

I'm not too proud of this but someone might like to glance at it. Write me and I'll tell you all about it. I'll have to tell you where and how I got it too as that experience was non pariel.

That is certainly not a recumbent it's a tandem-pronebike spuds mc googles! Recumbent means reclined so you shall have to come up with one of your "goofy" models if you want to call it a recumbent. For the rest what you consider "goofy" most of us think is beautiful inspiring. There have been a lot of pronebikemodels since the early forties but none of them became as popular as the recumbents.

A must for visibility!!

Beautiful bike. Mine is the Mistral in #42. I'm using the black plastic sponge seat--about 2" thick and very comfortable. It attaches with velcro. What kind of seat pad is on your Fujin?

I have a handmade cushion made of leather from "de liggende Hollander". It is most comfortable and resistent to water- I simply love it. I have never tested the Mistral but I have a friend of mine who has got one and he can't think of a better bent. Congratulations!
