Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

I'm famous!

Well, not exactly. Here's me posing with my home-built horsey on our local bike-shop's web-page. Cool, huh?

"Death trap," huh? It looks good to me. I didn't have much luck learning how to ride a MBB. I take it you're doing OK on it?

Nah, they don't seem to be on the same wave-length. Nice guys, though. I tell ya, since I've started riding recumbent, I don't care if I ever ride a 'conventional' bike again! Well, maybe in an emergency, but only then!
Just when I thought I had it figured out, I go and install Shimano SPD pedals. That will take some practice as well!
