    Hi All, From Palatine, Illinois

    Hi, I'm Rob.

    I've been accumulating a lot of bike miles for many years now. I like to reset my odometer each year to keep track of how many miles I ride each year (it's usually over 1,000 now and my best year was over 2,000).

    I am currently riding a Trek 1500 road bike but am really liking the recumbents that I have ridden recently. I hope to get a LWB recumbent soon.

    I've just been reading through a bunch of the posts here and have been wondering why I haven't followed this forum until now!

    Thanks, Rob.

    Thinking about recumbents messes with your brain.

    When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. Arthur Conan Doyle

    A little more than thinking I guess

    OK, I've been doing more than just thinking about bents. I have a freind that I ride with often that had a Bachetta Giro (short wheel base) and now has a Tour Easy (long wheel base) and I have ridden both of these on some long trail rides.

    I remember being pretty sore after riding something like 50 miles on my road bike and then trading bikes (to ride the bent) and it was just SO comfortable! Also, I like the view better.

    I started shopping for bents at the end of last year, but am now unemployeed (like a lot of other people) so the bent purchase needs to be on hold for a little bit.

    I also like the idea of more than one bike (I don't know about tattoos!) so I would probably keep my Trek for a while too.

    Thanks for your comments!
