    Considering recumbents?

    As someone who is soaking up as much information as possible before buying my first recumbent, I thought others who are considering their first recumbent might find this review interesting: The Rucumbent Experience

    Pardon my language, but damn that makes me wish my balance were good enough for two wheels...

    I highly recommend some caution here. There will always be more information, but, even if you are very young, there is a limit to your time. Days spent gathering information are days lost to riding.

    Ha good point. but nothing to worry about. I love to learn, but once I am riding, I think my study will drop way off. I am actually trying not to get too excited. I want to buy the best bike for me, and I don't think I will have the opportunity to test ride many different ones. It seems all the shops around here carry the same two companies.

    Oh and I am old enough to be amazed that I am not still young.

    Reading that article did make me wish I had some real hills to train on.

    time for bed.

    A good hunt makes bagging your first bent more satisfying. Study away!

    Currently just a hybrid 2 wheel, but looking for a KMX trike.

    To be honest, I don't care what the nay sayers say. I'm just so fed up of being bent forwards, and so fed up of being blown sideways by speeding trucks that nothing will get between me and my first trike.
