Main attraction was safety; stiffer sidewall and tire rim interface make it more unlikely that the tire will dismount from the rim during rapid deflation. Not having pinch flats is another plus...

I am sold on road tubeless. However Shimano Ultegra wheels are great all arounders. Shimano Dura Ace 9000 C24 are sweet also and are probably within your budget.

I don't believe that Edge recumbent bikes in Tennessee has been mentioned. Edge acquired Burley's business which if I have my facts straight would be somewhat like BicycleMan's acquisition of Linear?

Learned of a used Rans V-Rex but have not had a chance to view and ride it yet. It may not be very old.

How would that compare to a Corsa?

What would be a good price?

Shops are too far away. Guess I will have to wait until I am making a trip near a large dealer or purchase direct. Maybe I will find a used deal in the meantime but not likely.

I have been doing dealer searches and they are few and far between, rarely have more than one brand with limited inventory, and are very far away. Recumbent distribution is almost nonexistent.

The Sun 3-wheeler is for you; would not even consider the Giant at this point. A responsible weight loss program would put you more than a year away for the Giant.

Good luck on your weight loss...
