Recumbents for randonneuring anyone?
I'm building a Bacchetta Giro 20 for commuting, and touring, however I've long entertained the possibility of riding some brevets or permanents. I've given up on DF bikes for the time being due to some persistent fit issues that I can't seem to overcome but which are greatly lessened by the riding position of a 'bent. The few centuries I rode last year were kinda fun, but towards the end (only four centuries), I kinda became disenchanted with long distance cycling. I think a lot of my issue was comfort problems that became apparent after about 70 miles or so. I'm hoping the 'bent will make time on the road easier for long distance. A brief search of the long distance bike photo thread shows very little evidence of folks riding recumbents for randonneuring. So, I'm curious as to whether there are any folks on this forum who do all of their long distance rides on a 'bent.
