I almost ordered a Giro 20 with discs in 2008 but would have had to wait several weeks for delivery. RANS could ship a V-Rex immediately so that's what I bought. Both great bikes.

i am trying to keep from getting all excited til i know it's on the way. i have struggled with ass-hatchets for years, several bikes, countless saddles, pedals, etc etc.....always something else that solves the usual issues with wedgies. this year, i said screw it and ordered. already growing my beard in anticipation....

I get about 10 miles per cookie, but as they say your mileage may vary.

I'm so confused. I love my bent and I love cookies, but I don't know wtf the OP's title means. Also, I grew up in Anaheim and it is no where near Texas. Please 'splain Anaheim Flash from Mcallen, TX that ordered cookies********************

yes, those reflectors do seem to do a very good job. might keep 'em. got my new lights for it in today, and will be charging them this evening.
had my first wobbly ride last night. man, so different, but once rolling.....i am hooked for life!! i am going to practice in the evenings after work til i have the form down for playing in traffic. til then, still commuting with the wedgie.

You probably already know the secrets of successful SWB recumbent handling. Just in case, here they are:
  • relax
  • yes really and totally
  • yep, it's that simple

Best wishes for thousands of happy miles.
