    Actually, many low end bikes use high tensile steel, which is just one small step above gas pipe. Every Walmart/Magna/Huffy probably ever made is hi-tensile because the materials cost is much lower....

    Also, the nuts and axle that go with the Sachs internal hub have a very unusual thread size. Commonly available nuts for BMX/child bike axles will not fit on the Sachs hub. Whatever you do, do not...

    When I did long winter rides, 5 minute standing breaks helped warm the feet some. However, now that I find myself working outdoors extensively in the winter, pressure on the soles of the feet seems...

    That price is a steal. I hear that Haluzaks have a reputation for great handling, among the best for a SWB.

    You gotta start somewhere. Transportation, in fact, does eventually become a zero-sum game: Someone has to give up something if you want to get somewhere. In the past, it was "let's bulldoze this...

    The route needs to be longer to spread people out over a greater area... and of course attract more people. Lived in NYC 1999-2007 before Summer Streets :cry:

    If anything, on a trip like this you would want to be comfortable and capable of enjoying the view. No question for me: Recumbent!


    Good recumbent for a hilly tour? Probably a trike.

    Doofus:

    Your husband is a tall & light-ish guy, and should have no problem fitting any of the "high racer" type bikes. For long rides at a good pace with relatively little effort, I'd recommend a...

    Although I don't own this type of bent, for the harsh ride issue I would recommend fatter (700 x 28 to start) and lower pressure tires. And it might not hurt to recline the seat a bit.

    $8.00/gallon of gas will fix all this. At $6.00, they'll start saying "Wow, this is expensive." At $7.00, it's "Gosh, I better do something..."

    You don't necessarily need a Glideflex. You can put a riser directly over the fork steerer tube above the headset and clamp it. But you may (or not) need a way to compress the headset bearings...

    Of course, you should do some test rides on a variety of bents before you buy, if possible. But, like many converts, once you take the plunge you'll wonder why the heck you didn't do so years...

    I recently bought one of these. Not strictly a PBSF knock-off, but similar and comparable since it uses a 0.5W LED. Shipping took about two weeks. Can't vouch for the "waterproof" part, but...
