The problem with bents is there are several different styles and it takes a few hundred miles to get your bent balance and legs so evaluation can be dicey. There is one market place on the web site: www.bentrideronline.com which is monthly webzine pulished for several yrs with all back issues online. Look on their bulletin board, (it is similar to this but only bents). Also on Google: select groups, then type: alt.rec.bicycles.recumbent for another group. You really need to ride a few to get an idea about them.
Expect to pay 1.5-2x the cost of a DF for an equivalent bike. Steve
