Any bents in New Orleans?
I've moved to New Orleans post Katrina. I've been riding my bikeE to and from work through downtown for about a month now, and I've not seen one other recumbent bike. This is a very bike friendly town; lots of people on bikes. It's all pancake flat which makes for easy biking, regardless of which bike platform you use. Also lots of "odd" bikes and all kinds of homemade rigs, but no recumbents!
There was a nice recumbent shop here, but they got flooded in the storm, and have not come back.
The streets are in pretty bad shape from the storm, so I'll be looking for something more rugged for my next bike.
I'd like to hear from any recumbent riders in New Orleans. I can't be the only one, can I?
