nouveau member of the family

Hand-built bike, mezzanine and desk.

The replacement Rotator Tiger has arrived, a mere three years after the other one was stolen.

The arrival of Tiger 2.0 is the successful conclusion to our year 2000 recumbent bike experiment. in 2000 we bought a used Tiger to see if we liked this novel form of bicycle.

Some assembly required.

We were very impressed with the Rotator design and the bike's performance.

The speed was very good. The comfort was first-rate. And the view from the reclined seat was unexpected, and completely amazing.

The addition of those three characteristics is one of seven definitions of the word fun that are the tenets of Cycle Fun Montreal.

We discuss our experience with recumbents in this blog post from 2007.

Here's a video of the Sid on the tiger between Lennoxville and North Hatley.

And here's Rotator's website. (it's not not updated often)

Congrats on the new bike!

Was a little cool this past weekend - any planning for a front fairing?
