I hope so as well. Having one of the major US manufacturers of recumbents enjoying success with a lowracer would be great. It might break the hi-racer hegemony in the US.Greater lowracer availability in the US is a good thing; right now there's only Barcroft and a handful of expensive European models. That's ironic, since there were no lowracers in Europe until Sean Costin took his MonkeyHandt over there one year for the world HPV championships and cleaned up. I sure hope this model is successful. It looks promising.
Lowracers aren't for everyone! If steering were the only issue, you could change it; but I take it there's more to it than that. I would think it would be very hard to alternate between a very reclined/open position lowracer and a very upright/closed position P-38.I got a chance to see a "real" lowracer, the Baron, and after that, a Fujin is out. These bikes are low, really low. And the preying mantis steering is very different.
The guy who builds this goes by "Johnny Magic" on this forum. Yes, he can be bought.I wish someone would come out with a midracer around 17" high, in carbon!
