Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

Lets not mention the 3 events last summer and the 2 the summer before right in your neck of the woods........... Arlington crits? that you did not show up for. The black bear has a recumbent class for the 100 mile race this year. Yes, a recumbent class where all the hpv racers will be this year. You going to show up....? you didn't last year. I was there. where were you? I'm even going to race stock this year.

I think spuds has it about right. To beat up on a poor DF rider with your faster lowracer is well, not very fair IMO. So why don't you show up at the recumbent race nearest you and toast some fellow 'bent riders with your Baron. Hey, were trying to build a race culture but none of you show for the races. I am sure Sean could use your entry fees to build an even better event for next season and the season after. It takes money you know. So why don't you show up?
Well spuds I have my slow bike ordered and will go off touring on it. Not as good as your homebuilt since I can't turn a wrench like you can or use a welding torch.

Gee Kevin, What ever happened to the guy who rode his Aerocycle and then his Aero in the hills of Wisconsen with his Cat.2/3 DF buddies and outclimbed them? Was that all a ruse? I think not. You were and probably still are the best climber on a recumbent I ever met. Too bad you got a hair up your ass for average recumbent riders. What ever happened to you? I'm probably the only one on this forum who actually knows you and have ridden with you. Your sarcastic and sometimes confusing posts under various screen names targeted at those who once respected your opinion and ability are to say the least bewildering. What ever happened to posting under your real moniker and standing by it.

I'm adding him to my ignore list, too. It's only a matter of time before his behavior forces the Forum Gods to block his IP address, just like BROL and Cycling Forums have already done.
Its not actually the same IP or subnet. Not the same person

Nothing at all sarcastic in that post Jude. And to riding with Cat 2's bents interfere with serious pace lines and are best rode seperatly in there own group rides. Thats what I do. And to some opinions of bents posted here on the speed thing most are wrong. Yes bents are faster than DF bikes. So what?
So if you want to race go to a bent race. If you want a group ride on a bent go to a bent group ride.
So I do not need a fast recumbent. A Giro 26 touring bike is fast enough for my needs.
And mr. blazzing pedals comments on the speed of a baron are way off base and I called him on it. There are newbes here and they should here the truth.

Silly, Silly, bikeshop owner! You of all people should know that 'bents can not climb hills!
The Aero included. BROL is the king of bent knowledge so you should post over there.
I advocate all cycling and any outdoor activity. I do not limit myself to just a silly recumbent bicycle.
Bacchetta ought to pay a real rider some good cash to ride around on one of there bikes and shut the mouths of some here there and out there.
Now Mr. Kerns ride of a few weeks ago is just the thing that I have been talking about. Just get a guy about 20 years younger with the same comitment and watch what happens Jude!

Is that a threat Chris?
Please do not come to my neck of the woods. You are violent and need medication.
Do you own a hand gun? I notified my local police department about you chris.

Mr. Gorilla to you sir!

Mr. Gorilla
Sorry your so angry about what ever. I like this forum. It's multi-venued, like me. I'm not recumbent restricted. I'll quit trying to figure out what happened to the guy I descibed in a previous post and refrain from responding to any thing that remotely looks like your diatribe. Oh yea, Carolyn says Hello.

Cool! Maybe we can get a lowracer paceline going, huh? Last year I was left out in the cold, so to speak, cuz I couldn't keep up with you on the first half. OK, on the first 9/10ths! Pacelining would have helped both of us!

This is more wonderful news!!! John Foltz will be racing his low race recumbent at the Human Powered Vehicle race in Indianapolis one month from now to join in the low race paceline.

That a way Blazing Pedal. Good to see another low race rider willing to travel to a Human Powered Vehicle event to race fellow youngsters on recumbents.

Heck I might bring my 150 lb duct tape and plastic "for sale" sign velomobile to race in Super Duper Street. The PBJ lunch is on me Blazing Pedal. Do you like Skippy chunky peanut butter on your PBJ?

Jude your a good guy and I am just razzing you a little bit. Bent riders are just way way to tense.
Fire me an email and I will explain it to you sometime.

That is great advice!
And getting rid of my speed only bent is just the thing to do. That's why I like spuds so much.
I got a nice slow "highwalker" coming so I can put bags on it and walk up a few hills.
I will be thinking about all you lowracer types out there huffing and puffing training for that Hpv race..
