    540's? look up sportaid. 540 is now a wheelchair size and you can get correct tubes from them.

    That's not weird at all. I'd be lucky if I ate half a sandwich riding 100 K. When things get longer, then I start getting hungry.

    I've also noticed that I get a lot more room from cars while riding my recumbent than I ever did riding a DF bike. But, if you're looking for something that gets you around the height of cars, I'd...

    That's a "Danger Will Robinson, Danger!!" I wear no chamois bike shorts on the 'bent. Still get the "cooling breezes", without the bee risk.

    Interesting how that pretty much lines up with TT speeds around here (I do TT's, not pack riding) The fastest guys will go about 26-27, sometimes 30 mph for 40k, the middle packers about 22-25 mph...
