    Typical. If you can't win an argument with cogent points, switch to ad hominems.

    You're telling me your entire original comment didn't have "I don't need a recumbent because I'm fine feeling the burn on my DF" as its point? And it's nice to know that you're so self-absorbed that...

    You are. I think lowriders and chopper bikes are stupid, but you would never find me posting in that subforum. I just don't feel a need to go out of my way to put down those bikes and their owners....

    I guess I can rest my case. Here came a couple of DF riders into the recumbent subforum not to discuss recumbents but to dismiss them. And to write up suffering as if that's something wonderful. Just...

    It won't be as comfortable as a crank forward and you won't get the safety of being able to put your feet down without getting off the saddle, but it's your choice to make if entry/exit ease is your...

    As noglider surmised, I like urban riding, so being among the buildings on the north end of South Broad and around Center City interests me. Seeing that area on Google Street View, it reminds me of...

    One other kind of bike you might consider is a RANS crank forward. Virtually everyone who tries one really likes it, many likening getting on one to be like that first time you learned to ride a bike...

    This writeup reminds me of the old Pepsi Challenge that used to be run in Central Park in NYC in the 1970s and early 1980s. I wish I had done that just once.

    No Trek 820, the first mountain bike Trek made circa 1983?

    There are way too many people riding foolishly in the city and on the bridge. I remember walking on it one day and having a guy buzz by on a road bike, probably doing 25 or more. We were just upslope...

    See how much you can get that 21-speed Townie on eBay for. If you can get it for $350, then ponying up $100 over the sale price of your Trek would be a decent deal. As Jaeger wrote above, crank...

    Higher end bikes hold their resale value a bit better. The lower end is flooded with competition. Sort of like how PCs can be bought dirt cheap after a few years while Macs still command good prices...

    If I had to guess, I'd say the winning bid will stay below $400, maybe $450 worst case, based on previous auctions. Don't know if that's too rich for your blood. Don't get in a bidding war. It's not...

    Your location says SoCal. If you're near LA, there's a 21-speed Townie on eBay ending in four days, currently at $217. Might not go too much higher since it's pickup only in Cypress, no shipping.

    A decent frame will be plenty strong. They're not as stiff as diamond frames, but unless you're racing, you probably won't even notice. In fact, less stiffness might be a good thing. Without the top...
