Anyone else loving "crank-forward" bikes?

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.

Anyone else loving "crank-forward" bikes?

Plenty. Trust me.

On the upside, my bike was repaired by the welder. The 70 series aluminum made for dirty, ugly welds and the paint is burnt in the affected area, but it is rideable. And I have been riding it hard. If I get some extra cash, I'd love to have the frame blasted and powdercoated to restore its original beauty.
