Well, I for one have this to say: I will give up my recumbent when they pry it out from under my exhausted rear end.



I was talking with a coworker the other day about the MS150. He mentioned a recumbent rider he talked with who said, "If you want to switch to a recumbent, you have to be prepared to give up a few things."

"Like what?" my friend asked.

"Like sore butt, sore hands, sore neck..."

I can second that! My hands, shoulders, and neck are much happier with me since I got 'bent.
