Anybody out there with experience riding folding recumbents on 20" wheels? SatRDay, Brompton recumbent owners??
I'm very close to converting my front suspension Downtube folder into a recumbent with a kit from Cruzbike (www.cruzbike.com). I'm primarily looking for comments on stability and comfort of a recumbent ride on 20" wheels. The Cruzbike will have front wheel drive.
All comments welcome before I start tearing up the bike
Sesame, I'm considering doing the same thing, either with my Downtube or my Raleigh 20. Eventually change out the hub to an 8 speed internal geared hub. Have you got the kit yet?
Interesting! I just got the kit today. Everything looks great.
However, after much deliberating, I think I'm going to convert my mountain bike first. I am preparing for my first double century this season and want to use this recumbent. I'm opting for the 26" wheels and full suspension of my mtb.
I want to convert the Downtube next though, if everything goes well.
If you do convert your folder, will you keep us posted so we can benefit from your experience?
