Any decent low cost bents available?
OK so I'm looking to enter the recumbent niche, and jeesh are the prices steep. Now I wouldn't mind paying a few bucks for a 'bent, but I think I'd like to start on something basic and low cost first to be sure it's something I'd enjoy. I do have a road bike and mountain bike that each get ~ 1500 miles a year. I'm hoping that with a more comfortable ride I'll be able to put a few more miles behind me.
After an exhaustive search yielding few good reviews on any recumbents I decided to ask you my fellow riders for suggestions.
I've looked on e-bay, bike forums, etc and still haven't come to a decision. While on ebay I saw the RecumbentUSA.com bike. Has anyone tried this bike? is it any good? Or what would be a good used bent to look for? I think I'd prefer an under-steering model.
Thanks for any comments
