places to rent/buy a recumbent?

I figured out that since my wife's biggest problem with bicycling is the tiny saddle, she might like it more if she had a recumbent. Of course, I'd like her to be able to try it first, so I was wondering if anyone knows where we can rent or test ride one? Anything to get her on my side would be wonderful!

That's on the way to the in-law's house. I'll see if I can find it the next time I drive by. Thanks!

Bent up cycles is the shop. That's where I bought my Bacchetta Corsa, drove up from SD to get it. I highly recommend them.

I will also endorse Bentup Cycles, which is where I bought my Bacchetta Corsa. Dana, the owner, is extremely good to work with.

Unemployed at the moment, so no... However that is changing soon. Need to start training for the 200k, been off the bike for a month. Plans are the 200k SD Brevet, 3 doubles and a century a month next year. Still need to do a December century, been slacking a tiny bit.
