I agree I ride between 6 and 8 miles an hour on my recumbent when just casually riding I generally ride normally about 10 mph hence the signature 10 mph journey. I don't see how most diamond frame riders keep from running in to each other steadily admiring theyre front wheel in the drops . I wanna be able to see what is in front of me when I ride . My bike is a tour easy clone from recycled recumbents . And very proud of it and yes I do own a diamond frame I ride it to once in a while . Another poster mentioned how slow his bike is it has taken me almost a year myself to get used to my recumbent and to build the needed leg muscles but honestly it is well worth it .
