Got a nice heap of components.
Used to run a bike shop and have built many bikes up.
Have a decent workshop with welding gear, drill press, air tools (cutters, grinders ect.) small metal lathe.
Also have a nice sized heap of steel stock of assorted dimensions.
Hey! I should build a recumbent bike from scratch!
Ride a lot but never owned a bent before. I have ridden a few for short distances and seem to like the low handle bar set up best.
Will use it for my 14 mile commute with lots of hills in all weather.
Looking for a compact design.
Of all the designs I have seen there is one that leaps out at me as a good basic outline for my needs if I mod it for low mount handlbars.
Any thoughts, tips, warnings ect.. would be most appreciated.
