Default I Need a Bike

I'm trying to find a bike that is angled like the one in my avatar. I have that one in my living room and it is very comfortable. I want one with WHEELS so I can ride outside!

I've looked at "recumbent" bikes but the legs are right out in front of you and very uncomfortable for me. The ones similar to my avatar are called "semi recumbents" or "comfort bikes" but even online, I am having a hard time finding one. Suggestions??

My bike is called a "comfort" bike but I'm not sure it's what you mean. It's a Jamis Aragon. I absolutely love it - did 13 miles yesterday. We were supposed to ride 24, but DH broke a spoke on his bike so we had to turn around and head back. Bummer!

You want a crank forward. Recumbent bicycle shops generally sell them. I've also seen some at REI. I have a recumbent trike myself but the crank forwards look cool.
