[Explanation] Recently, a bicycle "Made in Shanghai" that can be ridden on the back has been widely discussed on the Internet.

On September 25, a reporter from China News Agency came to this company located in Qifu Guangsi Science and Technology Park in Songjiang District, Shanghai.

  The person in charge Zhou Yanggang is taking the technicians to try this bike.

He told reporters that, unlike traditional bicycles, the bicycles they produce are used to lie down and ride. The biggest advantage is "comfort". Sitting on the backrest is like sitting on a sofa, allowing cyclists to travel long distances. There will be no feeling of backache during the trip, and other body parts can be completely relaxed as long as the legs are exerted.

  [Explanation] Why did you produce this lying-and-riding bicycle?

Zhou Yanggang said that he and his partner You Jia are fellow villagers. Ten years ago, the two liked to study various bicycles in their hometown of Sichuan.

By chance, You Jia studied a lying bicycle and took a video and posted it on the Internet, which attracted considerable attention at home and abroad.

  A foreigner approached me to help him make it, and when I was in my hometown, he was actually not satisfied with the products I made.

Then I did a lot one after another, and went to Shanghai to do it. After he saw the prototype car was satisfied, he let us make a large number of cars.

  [Explanation] What they didn't expect was that it took ten years to do this. At present, many types of reclining bicycles have been designed and developed, and the functions are more complete and practical.
