Townie vs Drifter vs Day 6

Wife loves her Townie in Florida - she wanted similar in Ohio and I thought I'd try one too. On internet, I ran across a Day 6 semi-recum, similar to Townie flat-foot, but with a wide seat with a back. Called Day 6 dealers but none stock it to try it; you can buy a Day 6 on internet from factory but it costs $150 to "restock" if you ship it back.

One Day 6 dealer, who also sells Townie and Sun, discouraged me from it, saying everybody prefers the Sun Drifter over either Day 6 or Townie. Now, I'm torn between the Townie and the Sun Drifter with aluminum frame. Has anybody compared these?

Welcome to BF.
This is the Introductions forum. Why not ask your questions in either the Recreational & Family forum or the General Cycling forum.

Hi Ebunny, Ron's pointing you in the right direction--it sounds as if you should ask this in the R & F forum first, and then perhaps General Cycling...
