  1. anyone converted a road bike to flat bars????

    Hey everyone

    Let me start off that I've put my big boy panties on because I'm sure I'll get flamed for even asking this. I had back surgery 6 weeks ago(2nd one) and have been a recumbent rider for...

    Just thought I would post a follow up. I've been test riding several bikes and decided on a Pinarello Razha K. It wasn't even on my radar but it looks like this is the one that comes closest to...

    I am far from a seasoned tourist or a roadie. I've been riding about 3k miles in 2013 and am on track for 5k in 2014. This year I did two week long tours that were approximately 450 miles each. The...

    yeah running is out. Doc has me walking 2 miles a day. He says that's the best exercise for strengthening my back. I was swimming a couple times a week earlier this year. I may get back into that...

    multiple emails have not resulted in a reply so I am going to see about locating another place that has one of those machines.

    I'm very faired skin and burn easily. I do it because it makes a mess applying it on the legs when all hairy. I don't do it late fall to February because I don't need to,use sunscreen

    yeah most people wouldn't probably want to spend the $$$ on the fit but given my medical situation it may be the only way to find the right bike for me.I will post up the results when I get them.

    MNX not to sound spoiled or anything but $300 is literally a drop in the bucket for what I've spent the last 10 years in medical expenses not to even mention the pain that went along with it. I...

    you guys may think I'm nuts but what about a Surly Cross Check? I had one before my back stuff and it was a fun bike. Being steel with little wider tires should provide a nice ride....right????

    MNX.....what is that called? I've never seen anything like it before.

    Just thought I would put up a small update. I had another back surgery last week. I regained almost all of my feeling back from numb areas and I've also got control of my feet again. Doc has me...

    I guess I should probably qualify my mention of us traveling. We go to the mountains and beach a couple times a year but almost exclusively driving. I'm not particularly worried about having...
  14. No and I don't really expect to be. I have...

    No and I don't really expect to be. I have several recumbents but I am just interested to see if I can even handle riding a DF bike.
  15. Thanks y'all. I am just now getting into the...

    Thanks y'all. I am just now getting into the research part of what brands are available locally. There is one shop in particular that has been good to me about working on my recumbents. I do a lot of...

    I have also been looking at the Orbea Carpe but it's more of a crossover hybrid bike.
  17. can y'all recommend a nice riding road bike for someone with a bad back????

    Hey everyone,

    I am currently riding recumbents and am starting to think about maybe trying a road bike. I had emergency back surgery almost two years ago and at that time I switched to recumbents....

    When you are able consider a recumbent bicycle. Your life will be forever changed. Sorry about your injuries. Sounds like you need a good lawyer.

    Believe it or not I really don't care. I'm not here to convince you but I find it amusing that those people that criticize the cb are usually the same ones that have never tried them. If he's a...

    well today was both a good and bad day. I rode in a club ride for St Pat's day today. Last year I did the 25 mile route and had to walk several of the hills. It was probably 1100' or so of climbing....
