OK, I'm considering a 'bent, or a semi-bent, for the next bike. I have some questions:
Are there any good 'bents under a thousand bucks?
Are there any 'bents that will fit in a car? I currently squeeze my bikes into my Geo Prizm.
How do you handle commuting on a 'bent? Do you have trouble locking up to bike racks?
Anyone test ride the Day 6 bikes? I believe these are sometimes called "semi-recumbent." Since I like touring, I want something I can ride all day on. I don't care about speed, since I don't have any to begin with, but I'd rather not have a bike that lumbers.
I'm not ready to abandon the diamond frame bike, but I feel that if I can get reasonably comfortable on a bike, I could easily double my yearly mileage.
