spike, don't they make bikes where the driver is in a prone position?  If not, why not?   bill w



Think long term comfort.  Most bikers are men…


Also… think of the rider’s neck having to look forward and side to side a lot.  Double owwww…


Another consideration: that might make the foot controls difficult.  The left foot actuates the shifter and the right foot the rear brake.  Both need mechanical linkages to the motor.  The electric bike might not need a shifter, but ordinarily you have two separate brake controls.
