    Which Bent to Buy?

    I just started riding bikes about 2 months ago. What i have now is a pacific cycle MTB from walmart that cost $53. I had a chance to vist a bike shop for the 1st time last weekend in Albany GA. My mom Bought a Electra Towine which is a nice bike but i want something comfrontable. They had a Bent trike at the bike shop and it was so comfrontable. I'm not sure waht brand it was.

    Are the trikes harder to ride than the bent bikes? What i want is one thats light that i can ride fast. My avg speed on my MTB is about 10mph in a 4 mile ride. I want to ride faster with comfront. The bike shop didnt have any bent bikes just the one trike.

    What type of bent should i get?

    10mph, eh? There's room for improvement there, whether you're on a better MTB or on a trike.

    Are there any other bike shops in your area? See if they have other bents.

    Also, check out www.bentrideronline.com

    The one you like most after test riding a few(more than two). Like jeff-o says check out bentrideronline. Bents can be very expensive. They are a blast to ride. But find a few bike shops with bents. If you have a choice you'll do better picking out the one that's right for you.

    Good luck.
