For many, the words “recumbent bicycle” conjure the image of a strange-looking vehicle with the rider set low to the ground achieving less than remarkable speeds. That perception could well become a thing of the past with the Cruzbike Silvio, the world’s only recumbent racing bike that is not only fully compatible with road bike components, but aims to eliminate many health problems associated with standard cycling.
Um yeah, this thing may alleviate genital numbness but is not going to, in any way, shape or form, going to alleviate the image of recumbents as strange looking vehicles. This looks stranger than most recumbents. I do like that it works with standard off the shelf parts. But I'm not going to be running out to get one anytime soon either way.
