    new to recumbents

    recently acquired a thunderbolt (believe an A-10, but not sure) looking for a fairing any good suggestions for parts or riding. Have ridden 100 miles in two weeks plus more miles on my regular bike to exercise the 100+ pound dog. I love the recumbent it is a very nice bike.

    bentrideronline.com is the motherlode of recumbent information and discussion. There are links to many manufacturers and retailers, including Lightning. They state they have Thunderbolt parts.

    Welcome, OrangeBeach.

    I've never been on a Lightning Thunderbolt, but always liked the looks of them. Lightning claims they are great on hills, which is likely a good thing in dealing with a 100 pound dog.

    I have a LIghtning P-38 and it is good on hills...however this motor is not. It does climb well, so I would imagine the other Lightning bikes would do well also.
