James, I'm not into "racing" at all. When commuting to work, I plan an hour for the 12 mile ride. It usually takes less, and I arrive on time and relaxed, not sweaty. For weekend fun rides, I try to stop every 10 or 15 miles, walk around and stretch. But even so, I "hit the wall" at around 40 to 50 miles with the BikeE. My dream is to someday do a Century, and to this end I'm looking at bikes with a more reclined seat and slightly higher bottom bracket. I've tested the Rans Velocity and loved it, but want to try a V-Rex before making a final decision. I'll keep the BikeE for commuting.
It really works well in traffic with the upright position. I'm
59 years old, if that means anything.
