Yuuka, Great looking journal! Nice visual description. You may want to include in your SUV travel cost, a pro-rated amount you pay each day for car insurance, licensing, and payments (if it's still not paid off).  ---Carl

  the Jackknife was so named because of the way that it folds for easy handling in elevators and on public transportation. Another feature that makes this bike practical for commuting and riding around town is the hydraulic drive system, which stays clean and requires very little maintenance. As you can see, this design also incorporates several features that characterize the Cannondale brand such as oversized tubing, HeadShok front suspension, and a “lefty” monoblade fork. Although Cannondale currently has no plans to produce this design, you should expect to see it as a concept bike at trade shows around the world.

Bike E

Bike E CT-Comfort Technology: Whether you ride for recreation, exercise, commuting or the occasional century, the CT is the perfect bike for the budget-minded cyclist.

 

BikeE E2 -BikeE Built for Two: Double your Fun on the BikeE Built for two. BikeE’s E2 tandem provides all the performance, comfort and fun of a recumbent, but it’s also the first mainstream tandem, recumbent or otherwise, to position the stoker with a full view of what’s ahead.

 

 $600(regular)

 

$850

(E2)

Lightning

 Lightning was one of the first producers of SWB recumbents. They’ve been building bikes for going on 20 years now and being that the two primaries (Tim Brummer and his wife LeQuan) are actual rocket scientists, their bicycles are pretty well sorted out. Lightning owns a few World Records and is still the only major manufacturer to successfully market a fully faired recumbent.

 

 
Trice Q

- The Trice Q is a great sports trike from ICE. Its frame is based on the world renowned Trice XL, one of the most popular trikes in the ICE stable. The Trice Q has been designed from the ground up to give you unbeatable value for money in a machine with rear suspension and the ability to fold and separate without tools as standard.

 

-The Trice Q is available in two track widths. Standard track is 31” (795 mm) wide, and narrow track is 27” (695 mm) wide. Standard track gives you loads of stability so you can really have some fun in the corners without worrying about shifting your weight. Narrow track sacrifices some of this stability to make it easier to get between bollards or through doorways.
Which ever width you choose, it will come painted in sparkling candy apple red. This machine is a real head turner.

Mercedes Benz Carbon fiber bike    While this is their very first racing bike, the use of carbon fiber in vehicle shells isn't new to Mercedes-Benz—the McLaren Mercedes F1 cars of Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya heavily incorporate it, and their SLR McLaren is the world's first production car with a body shell made entirely of it. The Carbon Bike weighs in at an amazingly light 8.3 kilograms, comes with components from famed Japanese manufacturer Shimano, limited edition of 1999  $3665
 Oryx    

Made of carbon composite, the handlebars, stem and fork are all one piece, with the ergonomic seat post and saddle integrated into the frame. Handlebars connect to frame via a pivot, and the seat even has a hole in it to keep you cool while you work the pedals.

The Y-frame shape means that the Oryx is shock-proof and keeps you in contact with the road at all time, and there is a one-sided fork and chain-stay. The crank is designed like a ring and mounted inside the frame on a couple of ball bearings, and the wheels detach from the bike at the push of a button, a useful time-saver for competitions.

 
Hydro-Cell Bike    It may look unassuming, but this bike by Shanghai pearl Hydrogen Cell co. is pretty revolutionary. Behind the seat is a hydrogen fuel cell. So not only do you get a nice little motor to help propel you 15 mph for up to 60 miles when you're sick of pedaling, but you can also be fully recharged in about a half hour. This beats the hell out of regular electric bikes, which typically clock in at around a 3-hour recharge time. While this bike won't be much help to you if there aren't any refueling stations in your area, if there are one or two you can always just pedal there if you run out of hydrogen. Much easier than if your hydrogen car runs out of fuel.

 

$2600

 

(should drop $500)

iZip

The iZip is a hybrid electric bicycle from Currie Technologies with a small electric motor that amplifies your pedaling efforts.

The motor is powered by a lithium-ion battery, which is rechargeable. On high-power turbo mode, one charge will keep you freewheeling for up to 31 miles. There are two modes: standard and economy, which gives you up to 56 miles of aided biking before you're on your own again.

The iZip has also got a 27-speed Shimano drive-train and RockShox forks but, as yet, no price tag.
