This Bird of Prey bike is said to be super comfortable. I don't know - what do you think?

Other features of riding semi-prone include a lower center of gravity – 30 inches from the ground vs. 48 inches on an upright cycle – which allows for tighter turns and quicker speeds. The design is more aerodynamic than riding upright, which creates a good deal of wind drag.

This new design may be the answer for athletes or leisurely riders looking for a more comfortable way of getting out and about.
