I want to buy my first 'bent and, after riding a number, have falled in love with the Longbike Slipstream.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this bike - positive or negative? A few questions I have:
1) What is the reputation of this bike within the 'bent community?
2) How on EARTH would I transport it?? I need the extra long version because I'm tall, so overall length including tires is around 96 inches. Holy cow! I drive a mid-size SUV, so I guess I'd have to put it on the roof?
3) How long does it take for muscles to adjust? After riding it about 5 miles at high speed, I noticed later in the day my hip flexors hurt. I guess my legs would need time to adjust?
4) Any thoughts on how the Slipstream compares to Longbike's Eliminator G2? Is it worth riding one before making a decision? Does the Eliminator have that problem where your foot can hit the front tire during a turn?
I know this is a lot of questions, but if anyone can contribute to one or all of them I'd sure appreciate the advice.
