Re: One less recumbent dealer.

As of 14th February 2013, Futurecycles Ltd regretfully ceased trading. We thank all our customers who supported us over recent years in our shops in Forest Row and Lewes.

I did think about that, but decided my garage rafters weren't high enough to hang the resulting trike from :roll: What's the wheelbase now?
