    Hello. I am 53 years old, and live in Arlington, Tx. I own a Tsunami T-1 SWB recumbent, and a Sun EZ Tandem. I just got my bike in September, and aside from test rides, it was my first bicyle riding in 40 years, so I'm still a newbie to all of it. I try to ride 4 days a week, put in 70 to 100 miles. I've joined a local cycling club, so I ride a lot with people on df's. They're all nice, never make fun of my kickstand or anything (I have a kickstand because (1) I already look like a geek anyway since I'm on a recumbent, and (2) I need to lose 20 lbs, so there's no point in being too much of a weight weenie to have a kickstand until I do that). I've only had the tandem for a couple of weeks. I think my wife and I are really going to enjoy it.

    They told me it's ok to post mileage over in the commuting forum, so you'll probably find me there these days.

    Hey,
    2 new bikes in the same year! Dude I am seriously jealous. My wife and I did triathlons for a few years and I would love to get her back into the race on a tandem, or any bike for that matter. Love the bent to,as I just began to investigate them myself on this website. Please report back about your experiences with the small bike. Personal experiences seem to be difficult to find (yet very important) when looking at bents.
    Welcome
