    Surely you're not thinking of going over to the other side.

    Some thing I learned when I bought my 'Bent was, looks can be deceiving. I wanted one of those sleek looking, feet in front (SWB) under seat steering ones. I ended up with a long wheel base, over seat steering one. First you need to look at how much you are willing to spend. If you have limited funds, that can limit you to which types you can buy. If funding is not as much of a problem, then what do you want it for? Some styles re better suited for some types of riding than others. Then find a dealer and go ride a varity, that was my saving grace. I love my 'Bent, but if I just bought one without riding a varity, the ending may have been different.
    :cool:

    I have riden all models of the Burley bents as well as most of there tandem models. There bents are very well thought out and handle very well, one of the few SWB that can be riden "no hands" very stable all around. I did find there seat a little short in the back sectionfor my likes.
    The finish on all there bikes is really something to see, hard to belive that its powder coat and not paint. For the money you would have a hard time finding a better value.

    The LBS (who did carry BikeE) has just began stocking Burleys. My initially opinion was that they don't look like a wedgie. I hope that helps, Pete.
