Classic & Vintage - My New Bob Jackson late 80s time trial bike.
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Just trying to figure out if anybody has any thoughts on this one. I impulse bought a late 80s Bob Jackson funny bike. Anybody ever ride one of these? It's more of a curiousity bicycle for me, but I want to ride it so I think it's going to be fun. Let me know your thoughts. When I get it I'll take some better pics and show some better details. Sorry if I posted to the wrong group. Cheers.

I like its level of ridiculousness. I've ridden funny/time trial bikes as commuters and I really enjoyed how they handled.
If you're going to use this at all then you'll probably want to ditch the disc, as any wind will make handling tricky.
Is that a 24" wheel in the front? If so, I'd advise buying spare tires/tubes as soon as you can because they can be really hard to find when you need them.
Oh man. I love funny bikes. Just looking at them is fun.
I would love to try to ride one. I think they're still legal for triathlons; not sure about USAC though.
I was thinking of putting an 80s Roval Aerodynamic spoked wheel on the rear since I have one laying around. Yeah, the front is a 24 incher I think.
