Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

Bike & Build

http://bikeandbuild.org/cms/

Last month one of the groups from this organization came through Charleston & stayed at my church. I was part of the committee that greeted and fed them. I came to the meeting on my 'bent, and although they had been riding all day, most of the B&B riders insisted on taking the Greenspeed around the parking lot, just to see what it was like.

They loved it, and more than one said that they wished they were using something like that on the trip.

They were all riding on bikes that had been donated by Giant. http://www.bikeandbuild.org/cms/content/view/9141/301/ This gives them a tax write-off and good publicity.

Perhaps one or more of the major recumbent makers should consider donating bikes some year.
