I'm jealous of your triple digit gears!
That's one of the fun things I like about recumbents;
innocent bystander;..."that's a pretty snazzy rig! How many speeds does it have?"
you;..."a hundred and twenty!"
because that's more than they imagined . OR .
because they think you are mocking their knowledge of gears on a "bike".
One of mine has 54 speeds & the other has 72.
Those numbers usually get a similar reaction, but 120! Man, that's sweeeet!
So post us a picture of your Mikado, I haven't seen one yet.
