Recumbent trike racks 1/2 off
[Disclaimer: This item was posted on April Fools Day, 2017. It is not to be taken seriously, though, perhaps, half-seriously. The rack and the trike are real and not Photoshopped. The trike is a Terratrike (perhaps an older Tour) and the rack is based on HP Velotechnik design.]
Today only, AlphaBENT is selling recumbent trike racks that are half off.
These racks are for trike owners who know that "less is more".
They are specially designed for non-touring trike-riders who have half a mind to take something with them, but aren't quite sure. The novel design leaves one side available for mounting dynamos and other accessories.
Manufacturers benefit from the 1/2-off concept by only having to design half of the rack and production is half as fast.
The first partial prototypes are in and AlphaBENT is selling them to test the market.
The new concept ushers in an era of fractional sales of fractional goods in the Fractional Economy.
Adherents of the Fractional Economy Concept say the economy gets a strong stimulation because recumbent trike buyers can purchase their trikes as they can afford to.
"I can see a day coming when people will buy 60% of a trike one month and then buy 15% more when their next paycheck comes in.", said AlphaBENT owner, Hugh Kern, "I'm only partially sure that this is going to take off. A lot of people have been telling me that this is a half-a__ed idea, but, I decided to just run with it."
"Memory" is designed into handlebars on ICE recumbent trikes with sawtooth edges like those produced with pinking shears.
