HP Velotechnik builds an impressive line of recumbent bicycles including the Scorpion fx. This bike quickly folds up for easy transportation. In merely 60 seconds, the bike folds up without the use of tools. In an additional 30 seconds and the use of an allen wrench, the bike folds a even more. The basic model starts at $3,090USD.

"HP Velotechnik's plush suspension and adjustable BodyLink seat assure relaxing comfort. The frame's cross member is bent up and forward to meet the sturdy wheels up front, giving a long wheelbase for safe braking, easy access to the seat and avoiding heel interference for smaller riders."

Implications - Recumbent bicycles are an example of products alternatives offered in consideration of health circumstances. These products do well as they are not based on a desire, but a necessity for consumers.
