Ready for Touring
Jeremy, welcome to recumbents.
Most "bent" riders will tell you that it can take as little as 500 miles to a much as 1000 miles to get your bent legs. This really is dependent on how often and how...
Bull, I took a test ride on that trike. Very nice ride. I found that it does take a bit more effort to peddle than a two wheeler but that will actually help in your quest to loose weight. It wasn't...
I ride both paths several times each week. The Old Cutler path is a much more scenic path (several tourist spots also) although it does get a bit rough in spots. They are currently updating the...
Thought about the Jolly Roger myself but ended up with the bigger, more colorful one in the picture. Being from Miami and having to drive with these third world drivers inspires me to make my bike as...
Wow! I thought my Dash looked busy. Is that a back-up camera monitor in the middle? :roflmao2:
I had never had knee problems when riding my DFs. When I transitioned to my first recumbent I was having knee pain in my left knee. Took a couple weeks to get the "fit" perfect but still had some...
Thanks everyone. It was a great day. :thumb:
It’s been 15 months since I started riding (again). In those months and thousands of miles ridden I’ve had one goal. To ride my age on my birthday.
Today I turned 52 and I rode 55 miles. I know...
I have the Aerotech shorts as well. They are great shorts that fit well. I wear a size 38. Ordered the XL and they fit perfectly. The legs cuffs are a couple of inches above the knee while riding. I...
Yes, it's a recumbent. It's a Sun Bicycles EZ Sport AX. Here's a picture of the bike.
I have gone totally recumbent now. My new dash belongs to a Bacchetta Corsa.
There are braze ons for bottle cages on the handle bars. Very convenient.
I know this thread had been sinking into oblivion, but after changing the bars on my Bacchetta Corsa I just had to post a pick of the "dashboard". Besides, I like seeing how other riders decorate...
Link worked for me. I just signed up. Had been thinking about joining but had been putting it off. Have only been riding locally but really want to do some touring. I believe I'll do one of ACA's...
Wildlife along yesterdays ride.

Bought a week ago. Fast, responsive and easy on the old neck.
In the summer I will were my kit to work because it's too hot to were my usual jeans, so it would be harder to tell I'm commuting except for the panniers with my work cloths. During the winter I'll...
Key Largo, Florida, yesterday afternoon.
The picture is disturbing, but , I'll bet there is an interesting story behind the signing of the picture. The story is the only thing that can save this thread now. You can't un-see what's been...
This sounds like a fantastic idea. The southern most point in the US would have to be included. I'll cover the 120 miles from Homestead to Key West Florida. The idea of a virtual baton is a good way...
Tumatan, there's no way of knowing until she rides a few. Personally, I've had great luck riding my LWB EZ Sport. I've had lower back and neck problems for years. I finally had to give up riding my...
Came across this item while wondering around the interweb this evening and remembered your post here. Thought this might suit your request.
Cool! I'm out in the Redlands, North of Homestead. Once again, welcome aboard.
Welcome to the Bike Forums Jorge. Where in South Florida are you?
I would be interested in hearing how da Brims work out for you and your wife. They're not quite my style but I'm getting old enough that function takes priority over style. Protection for the neck is...
