I was dead set on a Raleigh SC200DX comfort bike. Mostly because that is all I was able to test ride. I may still be. Comfort for my aching spine (spinal stenosos) is of top concern.
However, I had a question on the RANS bikes, particularly the Dynamik and Fusion style models. Are these recumbents or are they not considered so? Is something like that so different than the other RANS recumbents that there are major differences?
The price difference between the Raleigh comfort bike and something like a RANS is big - so to ditch my Raleigh plans and go a different route means save, save, save for a while for me.
I am waffling a bit now because I have read the forums more and discovered that there are SO many types of bikes I have never seen before! My local shop is very very small, however I really want to be able to order through him. I will have to ask what he can get his hands on I guess other than what he has in the shop.
The more I read the more different types of bikes I realize it would be fun to own!!
