My 152mm crankset came today. It's already on my recumbent and I took a 200' test ride through the condo parking lot. I still can't ride completely pain free but it's definitely easier on my hip than the 175mm cranks in either recumbent or DF configuration. I'm thinking the more I ride the sooner the pain will subside.
Sunday's weather is supposed to be great. The Grouch is happy.
At the same time I ordered a semi high end idler pulley for my recumbent. Naturally it doesn't fit. Turns out the correct semi high end idler for my bike is $30.00 more. The correct high high end idler for my bike, with a ceramic bearing and titanium rather than aluminum cog, would have been $80.00 more. They don't have any mercy pricing these low volume recumbent parts.
