Mother Earth News, that old hippie fishwrap about macrame and solar heating and hemp suspenders, has been tripping on bikes lately. Today, I noticed this 1999 story about an $18 recumbent bike that appears to be back in rotation.
I don't know. $18 seems like not quite enough. I don't think I'd ride a recumbent -- especially a homemade one -- for any less than $50. And if it involved actually riding it where someone would see me, you'd have to pay me more like $100.
What's that you say? $18 is what I'd have to pay to ride my own homemade couchbike? Uh... pass the bong and let me think about it.
O, the world was such an idealistic, child-like place before 9/11.
