Newbie question for Challenge bike owners
i live in Israel, and i am new to recumbent bikes.
the only recumbent shop avaialable is that of a Challenge bikes
since public demand for recumbent bikes is negligible here, the importer does not have all Challenge models. since i do not want to spent extra money (over the retail price) on custum fee, i will be buying my bike from the Challenge bike importer.
i know that buying without testing is not recommended but i do want to read your comments. according to the following profile, which model of challenge recumbent do you recommend ?
my height - 170cm (~5'7")
main usage of the bike - commuting (~20km a day) through heavy traffic and road shoulders.
i was considering Challenge Wizard and Challenge Seiran (will it require a ballerina raising of one foot when starting to cycle?), becuse their seat height should allow eye contact with motorists, will other models do as well?
Thank you, yonatan.
