dedicated DF roadie here dropping behind enemy lines to look for help for my wife. she's had back problems the last few years and is uncomfortable riding a regular bike. she'd like to get into a value-priced recumbent to get back out and around with my daughter and I again. i know a little bit, but would appreciate any advice to help her (us) make a good decision. we've got a nearly exclusively recumbent store nearby and another all-types bike store that's having a big-big sale this weekend. we'd like to take advantage of either. we're in central indiana so hills are not a big concern although ignorant drivers are - as is the case everywhere i'm sure. what are recommended brands? best fit methods? expected beginner prices? etc......
thanks for the help,
