I am intrigued by recumbent not really considering buying one for now. I was wondering, looking at the bikeE (and some other) pictures. Is it easy to lock a recumbent bike to a pole or a bike rack? It is an important consideration for cummuting. Looking at some model, there doesn't seem to be a good place to put the lock on.
Also (question #2): it is often said that recumbent bikes are not good on steep hills. From experience, how bad is it really (be honest)?
