From City Bike to Lowrider in Nothing Flat
It's called the SwitchBike.
The bicycle can be used in two different settings: 1) as the "Old Faithful" city bike, 2) as a lowrider. Switching from one setting to the other is done by turning the left handle on the steering wheel.
Created by Ron de Jong, this baby is a fascinating two-fer that would appear to make a good commuter bike, as well as a class 1 trail ride, here in Orange County, on our river and mountain to sea trails.
According to Fresh Creation Blog, the creator is still looking for a company to put this baby into production.
Hat tip to Randy Eady for the heads up! ;-D

I noticed that some folks in various comments/reviews were wondering about the seat height adjustment ability (as the seat seems to interlock when it's lowered in the recumbent position).
That's a good observation and I've been attempting to contact Ron de Jong to clarify. I'll let your readers know if I hear anything.

Checked with Ron over the Weekend.
The seat is adjustable, thou--not on the fly....
With Ron's future cooperation, I'll take it through some paces and send pics.
