Press room - Recumbent UK Vol. 2
HP Velotechnik in the news: the following text is an excerpt from the English magazine Recumbent UK, volume 2 (spring 1998). We recommend to order the complete magazine from the publishing house to read the whole story.
HP Velotechnik were showing off the Street Machine, a very sophisticated full suspension tourer, which I enjoyed the most of all the bikes available on the test track.
Their Wavey seems almost too sophisticated for its own good. A short wheelbase 20:20 with an instantly adjustable seat and very high pedals, it is easy to ride, and would work well as either a city bike or fast tourer just by changing the angle of the scat. It's cheap as well - is the recumbent market ready for this?
