    Sesamecrunch has betrayed us and left the fold!

    I have found damning evidence that he has betrayed us and moved to recumbents. Shocking really!

    The blue one looks fast, looks like it's mostly carbon. Wonder how much it weighs.
    I have the heart of a young boy. I got it on eBay.

    About 25lbs as it stands now. It's all carbon, but the front triangle is pretty "beefy" and most of the weight is up there. I suppose one could take 2 lbs off with weight-weenie parts.

    The other bike is at 21 lbs, but others have built 19+ lb versions.

    More weight on the front is good, IME. Most recumbents are rear heavy and that affects handling.

    Especially true on a front-wheel drive recumbent.

    I like bikes

    With my folder collection, it took about 20 bikes to satisfy my folderitis. With all that wisdom and experience behind me, it only took 4 bikes for me to satisfy my lust in recumbents. I love these two bikes and really don't lust after much anymore.

    I haven't figured out if that's a good thing or a bad thing...

    So what are you saying? There IS a cure for folderitis?

    Yeah, but it's like curing a heroin addiction not with methadone, but with crystal meth!

    If he is happy with his present bikes, I am very happy for him.....Happiness always, Sesamecrunch. I don't measure someone by the bikes he/she chooses-sadly much different from most here. It is the person that always matters the most as our bike choices are dictated by our unanticipated physical needs as we age, injury, or lifestyle changes. I just hope he kept at least one folding bike for nostalgia & ease of traveling with a bike.
    Best Wishes from Folder Fanatic!

    But I never suffered from Folderitis. "Just one" is a bicycle, not a symptom.

    HPFS, Diode and Snafu .... missing in action. Shall we revived HPFS for September?

    Yes why not?!

    We might let you back into the fold

    PS You did influence your partner get a folder so you definitely had a mild form of the virus

    I noticed that on the blue bike. I saw one made by a builder in Falls Church, VA. It's a really interesting idea with less chain and probably good for wheel durability since the rear wheel take more weight ... although now that I think about it more, the front wheel probably faces more lateral forces. Oh well ... this is a question for Jur or the other engineers, physicists, and so on around here.

    How does it turn? I assume that there are restrictive limits to how much the fork can steer.
