I'm a recumbent newbie looking to make my first purchase. I ride my road bike to work everyday but low back pain, hand pain let me to try a recumbent. It was Great! I'm hooked.
Now, all I have to do is pick on out , oh yeah, and pay for it. Thats where I need help. I'm slowing making my way through the information and here's what I can see so far:
Some popular lower priced brands/models include the Lightning Thunderbolt, Vision series, and a few others in the $900-$1700 range. Then there are other brands such as Longbikes that start around $2400.
I guess my question is there really that much difference in these bikes to warrant such a difference in price, are they really that nice a ride?
Any suggestion/tips/advice is appreciated.
