Right now I am "bentless" for the first time in years. I am looking forward to getting another recumbent, but am really trying to widen my horizon of exploring the different models, styles, and brands. Almost like I did when I first started out riding bents 5 years ago. I've owned/ridden: BikeE CT, RANS Rocket, RANS V-Rex, EasyRacers Tour Easy.
This go-round I want to spend a lot of time looking and test riding before I make a purchase, hopefully in late spring/early summer. So far these interest me: another Rocket or V-Rex; RANS Velocity Squared; Bacchetta Giro; Barcroft Virginia; Actionbent Road Runner; Catrike Pocket. Maybe a Volae (I believe they may all sit too high for me and lean the rider too far back for my neck issues).
Needless to say, I am planning some day and overnight trips to look at bents. Wondering what YOUR next purchase would be and why? What are you riding now? What would you change about your current choice if anything? What would you like to add to your stable? Thought this might start a lively discussion also for people looking to "get bent" as well as those who already ride recumbents.
