    Rans Tailwind

    I have always ridden a wegie but really want get a recumbent. I know I need to ride several models but the rans tailwind caught my eye. I think I would prefer to have my front wheel in front of my feet and a more upright position. The Tailwind fits my budget .
    Has anyone had exp riding one of some helpful feedback ?

    Yes, I had one that caught my eye, then I rode a bunch and changed my mind. In Houston, I went to Stress Managment Recumbents http://www.stresscontrol.com/recumbents/ and they were very helpful and took their time with me to help me choose that perfect 'bent. I would try some, go home to "think" about it, come back, try some more before decided on the one for me.

    I test rode the whole Rans lineup and chose the rocket, it is so fun and relaxing to ride . the seat is still compfy after several hours in the saddle (recliner) as long as I stand and stretch every now and then. I have a tough time deciding whether to ride the rocket or my 2001 Trek 5200 road bike.
