If a wealthy fellow like you can spend hard earned dollars on a recumbent I say go for it.Originally Posted by jrcln
I see that a youngster by the name of Johnny Schlitter won a 160 mile race with a fancy looking recumbent Aero. Very shinny. That looks like the Porsche of recumbent bicycles. You might have to spend thousands of dollars for one. Folks like me can live on $3000 a year with my CHEAP lifestyle so I build my own recumbent bikes and coroplast duct tape extras.
If only more recumbent folks were like that young whipper snapper Johnny Schlitter. I now see there are a few recumbent racers out there. Johnny Schlitter, Jim Kern, Fred Markam and Sam Whittingham to name a few. Too bad there are snooty recumbent folks who can only talk about watts and smoking roadies. All talk and no action at Human Power Vehicle races. They can learn a lesson or two or three from Johnny Schlitter.
I prefer to smile and walk up hills like most benters do.
