You bent riders can help me out here. I'm primarily a DF rider, but my wife rides a bent. She's relatively new to cycling, and has issues with hills. It's not the trike.....it climbs like a goat when I rode it today, it's a leg strength issue for her. Do any of you have a specific suggestion to help her build the correct muscles for riding a bent? I'm thinking the horizontal leg press in the Apartment complexes gym. Good idea? Bad Idea? Suggestions are welcome!
(By the way, are all recumbent trikes that good on a climb? It wasn't fast, but it just walked right up a 17% hill!)\ It climbs better than my upright.)
