Some people can ride MBB bikes, some can't. A friend has a hand-and-foot powered recumbent bike and he can ride no-hands for miles. Other people have tried riding his bike and failed completely.

I need to get down to Rose City Recumbents and try a Cruzbike or two. Given my lousy level of coordination and fitness it ought to be good for some laughs.
