Cannondale recumbent

Anyone out there have a Cannondale bent? I love the comfort and the ride but don't like the weight.

I'm in the Northern Catskills in New York and am trying to find a riding buddy.

I don't own one, but I have ridden one for a few days. Over all its not a bad bike at all. I do think it is pricey when compaired with other bents, try looking at bentrider on line for more bikes like the Cannondale.

The Cannondale Bent is quality all the way. The only problem I see with this bent is it's weight. It's just slightly faster than a BikeE but your not looking for speed with this bent. I really don't understand why Cannondale can't make a lighter bent with Cadd 7. if you know what I mean.
