Vision Thoroughbred "Crank Forward" - $250

Before Electra Townies and their "flat foot" design, even before the RANS "crank forward" series, there was the Vision Thoroughbred.  Vision was one of the more popular recumbent makers at one time, best known for their R-Series bikes.  The Thoroughbred took the design of a conventional bike and moved the cranks and pedals further forward in relation to the seat.  The design allows the rider to have proper leg extension while pedaling and also allows them to put their feet down when they stop, while still seated.  A very comfortable riding position that takes weight off the shoulders, neck and arms.
