    Local Recumbent popularity seems to be growing

    In the last two weeks I've seen within 10 miles of my house a Rans Stratus, Easy Racers GRR, Sun Tomahawk, Rans SWB (not sure which model..26 x 20), two Sun EZ-3's, a Bike-E, two LWB's that I didn't recognize, and a Sun EZ Sport.

    It seems like I can't leave the house anymore without seeing at least one nice recumbent! This morning there were three of us in a local park at the same time, unplanned.

    Here in the middle of Kansas the bent scene is a little slower...but moving foward even if at a snails pace. I am doing my part to keep the ball rolling. Even let people take a test ride.

    Are you near Hays? Four Rans X-Streams just went east across the state in RAAM.

    Yes, I am bout an hour east and south of Hays....I bought my RANS Stratus there while back.
    Did not hear about the X-streams going cross the state. you can guess I did not see them either.

    They went across Indiana, too, but I also missed them.

    (A RANS 26x20 would have to be a V-Rex, wouldn't it?)

    Pretty much everything is a little slower in kansas, I would suspect.

    You would think that in a place that is relatively flat and quite windy, bents would be more popular.

    Two groups - two observations. I am not schizoid after all!

    Although I'm told that there are some recumbent bikes around here, I have yet to see one. At a recent ride, someone said they had a recumbent but were gone before discussing it. There are a couple on BROL and this forum who live in the area.

    Someday we'll get together.
