I have a FWD Sofrider V1, which I am enjoying very much. On rougher roads, though, I seem to lose the "confident feel" of the bike, even more so when descending 25-35 mph. I feel no confidence in taking much of a curve at those speeds. I already have 500 miles experience on the bike, so I am not sure how much more mileage will change those sensations.
In an effort to change the confident feel of the bike, I plan to replace the original single wall wheels with new, lighter, stronger wheels soon, and will probably get a "stickier" slick tire than the Kenda Kwests, to see if that changes my perceptions.
But, what about this idea:
Though I will not go back to DF biking, I've been reading about the rise of the 650B tire size as a comfortable and confident-handling tire that doesn't compromise on speed. With the rising popularity of that size, and with lots of Europeans having used them for decades, there are several brands that offer even 30mm+ widths with excellent handling, traction, and low-rolling-resistance speed.
Would a change to 650B make any difference on a recumbent? What would those differences (benefits & drawbacks) be? Any thoughts or experiences?
