Both are outfitted with disc brakes and have a 29-82 gear inch range. Also rumored for 2011 is a new tandem (check out their 2011 catalog).

Like many of you, I love the idea of a Velomobile, however, I like the idea of one that has some utility. I'm not really interested in a slow, sleek or fragile racer. Here is a cool video about just such a Velomobile and blog link from the High Mileage Trikes blog.

We're found! The current archive and details were set up last week. Son Daniel linked our old URL the other night. Today, Recumbent Journal found out about our new blog and archive today, followed by Bentrider. There is some discussion here. It's fun to be back.

This vintage Lightfoot Ranger is owned by my pal Bill. I rode it on our local Rhody Tour two weeks ago. It was the first long ride on a recumbent that I had been on. It was a beautiful sunny day as my pals Bill, Chet and I rode our recumbents through the country roads of Western Jefferson County, WA.

Recumbent Cyclist News was the premier recumbent bicycle print publication from 1990-2007. Throughout these 17 years we published 101 printed issues. RCN went out of business in late 2007, an early victim of the economic downturn and demise of print media. Since then it had been our plan to place some or all of the RCN archives online. Our plan is to make this blog the new home for the RCN archives. To get to the archive, click here, or follow the link under "Pages" in the right column.
