Welcome exas. Please try to keep the pictures you post in this thread to recumbents only. No big deal, enjoy your stay

omgz thats me, you are my neighbor? wow!!!
I'm doughting that's you. Not many kids your height can ride a track bike with such a high seat. And where's the ripped leg muscles that usually accompany owning a and thus riding such a great bike?
OK I know you don't need ripped muscles to ride a bike, but I'm desperate for answers

My Rail

Here is my Action Bent Rail Metro.
Still getting used to it. What I find the most interesting is how far I ride before I realize how far I have ridden!
Great bikes in this thread. Thanks.
David.

attachment on back?

Hello

Is that a custom bag on the back of the bike to hold the water, or is it a commercial one?? Which one if it is commercial?

Thanks
Harold

Just picked up my first 'bent this Saturday. She's a Bacchetta Corsa. Picked her up from Planetary Cycles in Houston.



Had a great time on my first ride with Team Bent yesterday and a bunch of us will be riding in the Hotter-n-Hell ride this weekend coming up (assuming Hurricane Dean doesn't decide to pay us a visit!).

My New Bacchetta Strada

This is me on my new Bacchetta Strada. I got it to train for this year's MS150 - the old Trek 1000 I was training on was just a little hard on all of my body parts. This is my first bent and so far, it's wonderful. Sure, I'm still acclimating to the new geometry - I've discovered that there are some muscles I've never been aware of, before - but I don't have any of the problems I had on my old DF. After about 350 miles, I am about 1.5 mph faster on average than I was on the Trek and I've successfully tackled some major hills that I wasn't able to do on the DF.

Your link was too long, so I went to http://tinyurl.com/ and converted it to a small link. Then, just insert the link between the image tags. If you hit "reply with quote" at the bottom, you can see how I did it.

This is my late 90's Lightning Stealth which I have owned for about 3 days now. I got a great deal on eBay because the seller mispelled the word RECUMBENT in the title leaving the only correctly spelled word of BIKE. So I had little bidding competition and got it for $280. It's my first recumbent.
