I am a roadie and MTB rider with great enthusiasm for all types of bikes. My dad is currently in the market for a recumbent. Not only will it be his first bent but also his first bike in many years. I have given him some advice but when it comes to the recumbents I really dont know too much. If I get a few basic questions answered that would be great.
Do you fit a bent similarly to a traditional bike?
Do they come in size increments?
What other concerns are there when picking out a bent?
He is interested in working up too some long rides and possible tours. The two bikes he has checked out has the RANS Velocity Squared and Stratus. I told him they both looked geat for his purpose based on my limited bent knowledge. but as with any bike buy what fits best.
Please help us. Thanks.
BTW Price range is 1500 or less
