Why have recumbents got such a bad image?
My wife hates me riding mine,infact she will not ride a bike with me if im on the recumbent.
We have had some new people next door.I went out on my recumbent,and when my wife found out the first thing she said was "No body saw you did they"?
Ill have to admitt,ive been called the most offensive things when out on my recumbent,even had people try to push me off.
It seems to attract the low life like a magic beacon.My wife worries
Even a good freind of mine said"You have got some bottle riding THAT?.
Recumbents are great but they really do need a image boost.
Even a recumbent rider was asked on another forum what it was like riding a recumbent and he said"Its like riding a fat woman,
lots of fun,but you would not like to have your mates seeing you do it."
