In the market... sort of

I'm interested in recumbents for a tour I'm planning of the Natchez Trace some time in the summer of 2007 or 2008. I've been looking but can't find a thing about them, my searches always end up with recumbent workout bikes. Anyway, sites with recumbent frames and bikes would be helpful.

Thanks

Sounds to me like you need a Greenspeed TRIKE!

www.greenspeed.com.au

They sell tubesets, framesets, parts and of course, complete trikes!

(I have a GTX & a GTT and they are wonderful rides!)

You might want to take a gander at my thread below it has some good ideas and things to think about.

As for typing in, I found the same thing until I switched from "recumbent bikes" to "recumbent bicycles".

I'll ask you the same thing that I was asked..........when you get one let us know what and why. Good Luck
