Looks like a mighty comfortable ride to me. And sleek too.

Really? Look how the line of the bottom tube comes all the way from the fork right to the backstays. Bit of a sissybar off the seat... I think it looks killer & ill bet its fast as all get out!
Im considering ordering the plans & building one myself!

Is it better to have the handlebars up high on a bent like this one? I've seen others where you steer down low. What's good or bad about each? It seems like it would be harder to handle well having them up that high.

That one has underseat steering. Ive never ridden a 'bent but apparently underseat is more stable..
