I want a bike just like his. But, how do they handle in turns?

They turn great, my dream 'bent is a windcheetah trike. Amazing trikes, a bit on the costly side.

My doc told me to get a bent. Question: Is there a strong used market for them? I would think many people buy them, only to become disenchanted quickly and then try to sell them in almost new condition at a greatly discounted price.
The problem with bents is there are several different styles and it takes a few hundred miles to get your bent balance and legs so evaluation can be dicey. There is one market place on the web site: www.bentrideronline.com which is monthly webzine pulished for several yrs with all back issues online. Look on their bulletin board, (it is similar to this but only bents). Also on Google: select groups, then type: alt.rec.bicycles.recumbent for another group. You really need to ride a few to get an idea about them.
Expect to pay 1.5-2x the cost of a DF for an equivalent bike. Steve
