That's a long stretch between news reports. Not much news to report other than we are alive and well. Like other bike manufacturers we have our fingers in more than one pie. Often you need to prioritize things in life, which I have done the past few years. I have focused on designing and building new products for the wheelchair industry and paying little attention to the bikes. From a business perspective, a necessary thing to do and it has worked out. Now that the wheelchair products are doing OK I am back to paying more attention to the bike side. We have a batch of Slipstreams and some Eliminators welded and ready to powder coat, let us build one for you. The Longbikes site may not have been touched in years, but we are here to serve you, so pick up the phone and call.

An article on Livestrong.com names the Longbikes Slipstream as the best long wheelbase recumbent, quoting Bent Rider Online that the Slipstream is a "touring bike without equal." Here's more from the article (you can read the full piece here):

Lots of changes going on with our website over the last couple of days:
We're attempting to inject these changes into the site gradually and carefully, to avoid disruption as much as possible. As work progresses, we'll be adding functionality — along with some bells and whistles that should make the site more user-friendly. If you come across anything that doesn't look right or work the way you expect, drop us a line.
