    Acme Bike Co.

    That contraption has appeared several times on CL.
    It seems to be miscategorized ...

    You're right. It was wrong for me to assume they would direct all proceeds to beautifying his yard. I am insensitive before my morning coffee kicks in.

    Maybe they will re-invest and buy more propeller-making equipment to finally create a hover-craft attachment for a bike.

    It's the logical next step.

    Maybe the yard was landscaped, but the test-rides blew it away?

    They were probably thinking comfort, hater!

    Have you ever ridden a recumbant? They are amazi.....who am I kidding. I wouldn't be caught dead on that thing. That thing is God-awful.

    Does that mean that you are joining the hater club?

    I wouldn't be caught dead (or alive) on it either!

    Oh I will be the president! Then again, we are all getting old. Get a few of us into our late 60s and maybe we will be donning full body spandex suits and riding around on our backs.
