I live in a HILLY area. I like the big seat of bents. I am NOT attracted to those
that have the rider reclined. I want to sit up on a full seat and pedal with my feet
forward enough that the backs of my legs just touch, but don't rub on the big/full
seat. I want an almost vertical seat back that's strong enough to push against for
those HILL CLIMBS. I don't want USS. I ride for pleasure/exercise, no competing or
racing or the like. The basic look and lines of the DAY 6 bikes seem attractive, but
the down stroke puts the feet too low causing the back of the leg to rub on the seat.
In the end I have to overcome the HILLS here. Is front wheel drive better on hills
than rear wheel drive? So please, which bikes match up to what I've described?
Do any bents or semi bents have the ROHLOFF 14 speed internal hub? How does it
compare to the typical 21 speed, 24 speed, 27 speed bikes as far as the range of the
gears? Thank you for your input.
