RANS to Build Airplane-Friendly Bicycle


Among the many interests of RANS Aircrafts Randy Schlitter is bicycle manufacturing, which he does with an uncommon philosophy of design and ergonomics. At Oshkosh, Schlitter was showing off a new bicycle with a spliced frame that can be broken down and fitted into a typical aircraft. (Naturally, Schlitter wants that airplane to be a RANS, but thats another story.)

The as-yet unnamed bicycle features slick racing-style street tires, the trademark large saddle and a semi-recumbent riding position. Constructed of thin-wall steel tubing, the bike weighs just 23 pounds all up. The price is expected to be around $2600.
