    Pulled trigger on "+1"

    Confirmed my older fella status today by ordering my second 'bent, a RANS V-Rex. This is a cutting-edge, state-of-the-art bike, or at least it was about ten+ years ago, when they started making them. Certainly exciting enough for me, and should speed me up a bit. For what it's worth, it's half "the new white".

    I'm soooo jealous. Anxiously awaiting ride reports and pics,
    including the bike of course.

    Congrats on the new bike.

    A wonderfully odd looking machine. You're sure to get all the girls!

    I like the color.

    I'm getting accustomed to the look of recumbents as several members of our seniors group ride them. I'll concede, they do look comfortable.

    I've tried a couple of the SWB bents and I really struggle on handling them. I know they are the best sellers and people can really move out on them.

    I'm thrown off my bearing when I can't see the front wheel.

    I hope I don't have any major issues with the transition from CLWB to SWB. Going from upright DF to my Tailwind was fairly easy so I am optimistic that this will be easier.

    It's really nice to just put my feet on the ground and relax in the Comfy Chair at red lights.

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.
