I'm new to this forum but have been interested in recumbent bikes for a couple years now. I currently have a DF old TREK mountain bike from 1988. The bike has some sentimental value to me and I put between 2000 and 3000 miles per year on it. I ride to work almost everyday so that's where the majority of my miles come from.
In the future I'd like to get a recumbent for two main reasons. Speed and comfort. I've only test rode two bents. A Rotator Pursuit and a SWB Rotator Tiger. I liked the feel of the LWB Pursuit and based on all the reading I've done I THINK I'd prefer a LWB. So, what is a very fast LWB that would be faster than a DF, of course after building up the right muscles? Are there many LWB bents that have full fairings to really improve aerodynamics? I'm sure the low riders are the fastest, but I also want this bike to be a pleasure to ride in town/traffic if need be without really having poor visibility.
Thanks for any info.
