Don’t forget to watch today’s Laidback Bike Report where I will have my piece as well. With some recumbent news, of course.

We cover the launch of the production Podbike Frikar with our German reporter and velomobile expert Josef Janning. He takes a test ride and has an interview with founder Per Sorenson. Next we take a wider look at these “Velocar” type vehicles with professor Craig Cornelius including their history and future. Mathieu Aubel from HP Velotechnik reveals their new Hand Powered Trike Adapter and Nina Paley has a look at pedals she favors for powering her bents. Bookending all this is Honza Galla with the latest recumbent news and Denny Voorhees/Larry Seidman reporting on the latest competitive events in the bent world.
