Now that I've got a few days of riding my new Sun Tour Easy under my belt, I'm wondering how the lack of physical discomfort will affect my time in the saddle vs on a df. After about 5/6 hour on the loaded df, I'd call it a day so as to not be too exhausted by pedaling and physical stress.
For you guys into long distance riding on bents, what sorta saddle time do you usually average/day? If you switched from dfs, did you noticed a change in pedaling time and stress level riding a bent? In other words, can I expect longer distances/day on the bent vs the df? I do think I'm a tad faster on the bent, but haven't confirmed this.
The bicycle is one of the great inventions of mankind. Delights children, challenges young men to feats of daring, and turns old men into boys again.--Me
