    (pretty please? )

    There is a thread with "Bent" photos. The last reply was Dec. 05, 2004. Okay, here is pictures of six (6) of the seven (7) "Bents" that I have in my stable.

    You guys look familiar. I'm sure I have seen you at the Midwest Recumbent Rally.

    So this is what my GT will look like when my Streamer Fairing arrives and is mounted. I have been waiting with anticipation for two (2) months.

    Received my Streamer Fairing this evening in the middle of a snowstorm. 8" of the white stuff on the ground and expecting another 6"-8" overnight. Can't wait to mount it on the GT but no need to rush. Can't ride with this white stuff clogging the streets.

    Yeah, took a while for mine to come through too, got the Speedbag reasonably quickly, but had to wait ages for the Streamer.

    Found an extra advantage from the Streamer last winter - Cycling along one evening when the grit-lorries were out treating the roads before the snow came. On the 'bent, my head is at just the right level to get a face full of grit as they pass And when your face is cold anyway, boy does that stuff sting . Tilt the Streamer up slightly, and it does help to deflect the stuff away from you. Generally, I use the Streamer more for weather protection than for any aerodynamic effect - I'm rarely going fast enough for that.

    After the snow quit falling this morning we have 12"-14" of the white on the ground. This will curtail my daily rides for a few days until the roads are somewhat clean and not mucked up.

    Yes, there are quite a few trainers made for recumbents.

    I use a TACX virtual trainer with steerer for my Optima baron lowracer. All I had to do was lengthen the base of the trainer. I also modified a cycleops trainer to be used for a 20" rear wheel. My lowracer though uses a 650c rear wheel.
