I am sure you've had this question before, but can you take time to explain the advantages of short wheel base vs long? My riding interests are being able to ride up lots of rolling hills, and large group rides of 50-100 mile length. No real urban commuting. I don't know the advantages of one type of recumbent vs another. It seems to me if the short wheel base models are faster up hills and faster on flats then what advantage do I get from a long wheel base like an Easy Tour? I'd also like to steer up top moe traditional vs down by my sides.
On an ET - or TE (whichever one it's called) is it really that bad up hills?
