The upper body exercise looks good with these.

There is one chasing the blue velomobile here,

There are also some other video clips on the web.
There seem to be groups and races in Europe.
(The videos may be on some of the HPV sites.)

Has anyone tried these?

Does anyone know more about them, or know where there is more information about them?

I have seen them many times on the net but have never had the opportunity to see what one would do. May be a bit of a novelty even though one has the advantage of both arm and leg strength to propel the bike... if that indeed is an advantage. Main reason I ever thought of h aving one would be to improve the upper body strength......................peace
