Hi from Steven in Toronto

Greetings all. Though I don't have much time to participate in the forums I'm glad to see the network is alive and well. I've been pedaling for about 40 yrs.; lately on two recumbents and a MTB. My fist bent, and still the one I perfer for tight traffic, is a Vision R30 (suspended SWB). Great machine. But my greatest joy for "heads up/feet first" riding is my Greenspeed GTR. (hence my handle) For all you folks who've never ridden a recumbent, don't judge all bents by the (sometimes) awkward handling of a two wheeled bent; find a trike and spend an hour on it. You'll likely not want to return to a wedgie, except in those rare situations where they have the edge. As I don't own, and rarely use a car, I put my saved pennies toward the Greenspeed. Long term projects include a powered trailer(electric) for major moving jobs and a soft shell foam fairing for winter use. And when I have lots more money and time I'd like to build my family trike design; see it at www.landrower.com.

Happy cycling to all.
