let's say i decided that i want to do a cross country ride, north carolina to oregon . . .
let's say i'm thinking about a recumbent bike to do it with. . . .
i'd be on a bit of a budget, but i really want to do it. I'm going to start a fund for it so i can go the summer of 2010. this summer i'll be doing an internship.
what bike? 3 wheels/2 wheels? recumbent at all? (i've looked at the challenge hurricane touring model, and some catrike models and they look to be fantastic, but i haven't ridden a recumbent at all) is there ANYWHERE to get a used recumbent in decent shape? is there anywhere to get the recumbent i WANT anywhere? not that i know what i want.
in short, what's the best option(s) for touring long distances?
i like the idea of the steering under the seat. is this a bad idea for touring?
shed some light on me : )
trailers?? bags? both?
