Hi, welcome to

For questions specific to recumbents, you should ask down in the recumbents forum since more people with the right knowledge will be likely to read your message.

This section is just mostly to ssay hi.

Thanks for checking in!

Hello windbent! I have enough problems getting started from a dead stop on my road bikes, so you definitely want to ask the experts in the 'bent forum if they have any tips to pass on to you.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
