Last Roundup for the Cattrike Musashi

When Cattrike decided to discontinue its sole two wheeler, Sandy Earl snapped one up. Then she got creative. As Sandy put it, "nothing fanatical is worth doing unless you're really fanatical." So here we have what could be the world's only pink Musashi--right down to the water bottle, grips, trim, rims, cranks and chain links.

Unlike many short wheeled recumbents, which leave the rider to balance precariously on top of a high bar, the Musashi frame bends in the center to accommodate the hips, a human centered design that lowers the center of gravity. It's a fast, comfortable ergonomic bike and Sandy couldn't stop smiling. More on this remarkable woman soon.
