I would like to express my personal disappointment that for whatever reason Rans, after an announcement went out a couple of months back that it would be participating in this first industry "con" this weekend in Pomona, CA, was not there. Now I understand with the current state of the economy makes any travel a difficult decision and this was an unproven venue, still I had hoped to see a few more Rans recumbents on display other than the Stratus LE at my local authorized dealer. My six-hour RT did allow me to chat with dealers and industry reps and, of course, to try out other recumbents and trikes that are few and far between in my area of California. I dearly would have loved to try out the Rans SWBs & also to say how much I am enjoying my new Zen.

We regret not being able to attend, despite saying we would. We hope the show was a success, maybe next year, but no promises. The reason we opted out: We were not ready with our product line changes, so it would have not been productive for our dealers. I am glad you are happy with our bikes, and hope you will be able to find a good dealer, who stocks plenty of our models, to ride someday.

Completely understandable . . . It was a success IMHO except as I noted above. As a RANS fanboy and satisfied CF rider I will be looking forward to the lineup changes.

No discernible product line changes as of "Black Friday" other than the expected 2012 price increases. Some jumped a little and some a bit more. The "Shop Rans" link has been inactive today, however, so perhaps change is afoot there.

Two years after the last Recumbent Cycle Con, the latest was this last weekend again at the LA Fairplex in Pomona, California. And again, sadly, RANS didn't show. Still it was fun checking out practically every other manufacturer's rides.

Next year the Recumbent Cycle-Con will be in Chicago. I am hearing at the Odeum, but not sure on that one. It will also be in late Sept. Randy stated on BROL they may attend since it would be easier to haul their full lineup to Chicago. There was also some talk on BROL about a RANS tadpole trike. Not sure if that is valid or just a rumor.
