It's a position I'd rather not assume. At least, not in public. :)
Think outside the double triangle.

Lots of sweaty toweling covered bits to deal with, not to mention the constant pressure on your chest??
Dopey idea.
Thanks heaps.

The strain on your neck would be worse than a DF! Give me my laid back bent any day!

Hmmm, wonder what the first thing on his mind will be in a accident :roll:

I would think it could be very uncomfy IMHO, what if you have bad wrists/hands (I do to a point where I can't ride a DF let alone this thing) or what if your built like Dolly Parton lol or even worse if you drank too much water as it looks like you would also have pressure on your lower abdomen/groin.

Good point! Come to think of it, the body isn't built to be lying on the stomach for extended periods.
I also wonder about the actual pedaling position, it looks even weider than a bent. Lol!
