Reasons sound good!

I really liked your reasons #1 and 4.

I've been enjoying the Stratus for a month now, have had two flats (one today), and put on about 170 miles in the last three weeks. It's a very nice bicycle, and a very forgiving one too. I'm also learning to handle it in tight turns, which is somewhat more difficult than one would think.

Thanks again to all who wrote.

John

Oops!

I thought I was replying to my other thread, about convincing my wife about a recumbant. Now I see that, with the new format, I've inadvertently started a new thread. Could the moderator please set my comment on the correct thread?
