Best sources to research first recumbent purchase
Hi. I'm a roadie and I post regularly in the road forum. My wife really wants a recumbent so we're getting her one for her birthday this month.
We went to Mt. Airy Bicycles in Mt. Airy Md. and she test road about six different recumbents. Almost all were Sun, one was an Easyracer Tour Easy (I think) and one was a Green Machine tadpole (which she loved except she is timid of sitting so low if she's on public roads). She like the long wheelbase of the Sun EZ Sport AX over the compact EZ-1 AX. She just kept going back to the EZ Sport as the one she liked.
She'll be riding on bike laned roads in Alexandria VA and MUP's primarily. Does the long wheelbase sound like a good choice? What other brands should we be looking at?
Are there any concise online sites that explain all the different styles and their attributes, as well as what the better brands are? This is very foreign to me compared to road bikes. I'd like her to test ride more styles and brands. I want to get her something soon, but don't want to rush into an uninformed purchase.
