RCN had a test HPV Spirit listed forsale. I assume that it was a test bike. I can not find the
review in my old copies. Did I miss something or is the review to come in a future issue.

Thanks,

The best bike sold to Angletech (might still be available). The test bike was new in December. The
review will be in RCN 75. RCN 74 has been printed and will be distributed over the next 4 weeks. RCN
75 is a few weeks from going to the printer.

BTW: I loved the bike.

Bob,

I'll be looking forward to that review. As you know, I got mowed down by an inattentive motorist
last June while biking and now sport a mashed left hip. So I've been looking for a recumbent bike
that will a) allow me to sit in the seat with both my feet comfortably on the ground ('cause I
REALLY don't want to fall over), b) is fully suspended c) is light and small enough to possibly lift
into a bus' bike rack, d) is utilitarian enough for fenders, racks, and gobs of lights e) has a very
low liftover height, f) is reasonably fast.

That's a lot to ask, but the Spirit looks like it's a possibility, and I know you'll provide the
"straight dope."

Bob,

Thanks! I need to get to the gym* to work on my lifting muscles anyway!
