    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...

    I have an old RANS Rocket, which similarly has a non-adjustable seat pan. You might try adding an extra piece of foam under the seat cover near the front to help keep you from sliding off, maybe...

    The problem with one-sided forks is that they have to be done well or the steering could be wonky. Some early Actionbent models with mono-forks supposedly had steering problems, and I'm not sure if...

    I found Allegro on Facebook, they're the manufacturer. The bike is definitely a clone.

    Another option is a seat from Recycled Recumbents, if you can adapt it to the trike frame. You could probably even have a custom seat made by Mr. Carson if necessary, or make one yourself.

    That off-road recumbent prototype didn't quite work out, but he's the exceptionally rare mechanical-engineer-turned-framebuilder who would take on such a project.

    Hey, I just ordered a new kickstand for my RANS Rocket! The clunky one I have now on the bike is all steel and probably weighs a pound and half.

    As stated above, the front derailleur will work with just about any trigger. If you want to get a matching set, SRAM Rocket and Attack trigger shifters work with Shimano rear derailleurs.

    The seatstays on a recumbent don't have to be an integral part of the frame. Instead you can bolt them onto the dropouts or tabs on the chainstays if there's enough metal there to provide strength. ...

    If there is enough unthreaded steerer tube left after removing the threaded portion, I don't see any reason why the OP can't use the fork with a threadless 1" headset and stem. Note I said if.
