I've been riding a Bike-E RX rear suspension bent for quite a while. I like it, but it is heavy and hard to put on a car rack.
I'd like to get a new/used higher end bent. But I've been out of the bent infoworld for a while, so have no idea of what's out there.
I'd like something similar to my Bike-E but quite a bit faster and lighter. I don't want a LWB bent as it will be even harder to transport.
Ideally my new bent would have:
be lighter and faster than my RX
Price doesn't matter as it's a once a decade purchase.
The Cruzbike's and conversions look interesting, but I'm concerned that when you steer the pedals are moving too, that seems inherently unstable.
What would people recommend I take a look at? I'm in the SF Bay area.
Thanks for your help.
