Seem like there are a few new ones in my price range: Sun Delta sx, Sun tri-classic, in the delta style. If I consider tadpoles, there are the Trident Spike and Sun eco-tad that would be options. As suggested, I could figure out something to lift the seat on a tadpole although it does seem like they all recline a bit more in the upper body (especially if you're short and the seat is more forward). I concerned about my ability to see around traffic as well as be seen. At intersections, not sure if it is better to be on a tadpole with the tires and your body right at the curb, or slightly back from the curb
with your body and the front tire at the street. If you're easing out slowly into an intersection to see around a parked truck, for example, a car would be more likely to hit your bike than your body with a delta style. Anyone riding either style in regular traffic? This is "my car" not just a
pathways exerciser. I can't always be in bike lanes, etc.
