Here is my question...would love your opinions.
I have enjoyed snooping on your forum for a while.
I have ridden bikes mostly casualy, somtimes seriously for many, many years. My average trip these days is 10 to 20 miles. Well, my back is a bother and my wrists ache a bit so I thought a recumbent style bike might be for me.
I have had my eye on several models for a while and finally made the plungetoday. It was between a Burley Hepcat and a Rans Rocket but here is the catch.
I was able to ride the Burley quite a bit and liked the way that it handled but could not get comfortable, the seat in particular was not right. Plus it was a bit to high price wise. So I bought the Rocket but had to order it sight unseen. ALso, there was nothing similar to compare it to in the store except a Velocity squared, and only the seat was the same on that, but man what a comfortable seat. The Rocket was right in my price range and I do like the short wheel base style bikes.
So did I make a good decision buying a bike sight unseen. Is the Rocket a good bet, it seems I only hear good things about them. My only real reservation about the bike was the small back tire and some of the problems it might present.
What do you think, opinions please. And thank you in advanced for any info you all may have to share.
All the best,
