I'll admit it. I didn't get recumbents. All gangly and weird looking. How could that possibly be cool.
Let's backtrack, I'm 37 overweight and only back into bikes over the past year. I have had a multitude of bikes and currently run classic ballon tired bikes, and a Puch Classic Steel Frame road bike. I thought my road bike was great. So easy to pedal compared to my classics and fast.
My wife and I volunteer at a local museum and they had a big auction today. Well long story short they had this bike. I looked it up online decided it was decent and prepared to bid. I was high bidder. So I drag my new prize outside and make sure no one was looking. I settle onto the ungainly thing... wobble and weave plant the foot. Try again.... wobble weave... rolling. Faster... Ok 50 ft, 75... Maybe I'm not gonna die... relax... lean back... settle in. Faster... try controling with one hand... hey this is GREAT!!!! Got really comfortable and just cruised. Round and round the parking lot. Then out the access road... man this thing is fast! Get to the end of the road and a few miles down the main drag... almost forgot I brought my truck.
I am a convert. You guys and gals were right after all this time and I... Well I was the idiot. I'm sorry for ever having doubted you.
Here she is.
