    Anyone using a Volae Expedition Recumbent for Randoneering?

    Just wondering if anyone was using this bent for Brevets? If so what your experiences have been with it?

    Don't have an expedition but i have to say I think the high racer is one of the most comfortable ways to Brevet! I did a 600k this year and my posterior had no problems whatsover, neither did my back (which was what limited me to a 400k last year). I was skeptical about the carbon seat but it is very comfortable over the long haul. I believe the Expedition has a similar seat to the one currently on my Strada.
    Sunrise saturday,
    I was biking the backroads,
    lost in the moment.
