    OK, I wasn't trying to bait you into anything. I know what my experience is, and I was curious if yours was the same. But I respect your decision not to answer.

    So maybe I missed it, but I'm curious if there was a shoulder or bike lane where you were riding? If so, is that where you were?

    For the record, I'm not trying to imply that you could or should...

    Personally, I've found that bike lanes are the most dangerous place to ride most of the time. Back roads with no shoulder mandate riding in the lane. It forces people to move over to pass and they...

    I had a tadpole as well. I had issue with really painful toe numbness, and not feeling comfortable being so low in groups (that, and not seeing over the side of bridges)

    I got my recumbent to ride distances. For me, nothing else will do for anything over 20 miles.

    That's what I do as well. Although sometimes it gets moved when I'm working on the bike and makes it possible for me to forget, especially in the winter when I have stuff on my head before I ever...

    I wasn't advocating for anyone to do anything. I was just saying what I would have done. I rode into adulthood before I started wearing a helmet. It just wasn't common when I was growing up, and...

    For a 7 mile ride, what do you need beyond a water bottle and your helmet? Even then, if I had a ride planned I realized I forgot my helmet, I would have ridden anyway.

    I wake up at 4:20 AM, get...

    I use one of each. Sometimes my bar end mirror isn't turned where I want to look, and it's easier to use my helmet mirror than turn far enough to see behind me.

    I like that mount. I use a flashlight with two velcro strips, but not fast to put back on due to aiming it properly. How well does that stay aimed? Do you have a link to that mount?

    Never used it myself. I had a visor that wasn't big enough for a recumbent, so I made a bigger one out of a plastic folder and put it on with zip ties.

    Thanks for the information. I'll take that link off and use the quick links I have. I bought the recumbent used, but the chain still measured good. I suspect it was used very little by the...

    quick link type

    So I was going to take the chain on my recumbent when I encountered what I *think* is some kind of quick link, but I can't identify it.

    The closest thing I found showed someone popping off the...

    Over the last 5 years, I've had slime save me from fixing a flat twice. If the slime hadn't worked, I don't think there's anyway I could have successfully patched the tire with the mess it made. It...
