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.

Work stand for LWB?

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 02:47:40 GMT

I have a long wheelbase recumbent which I'm very happy with, and have been looking into a work stand. Typical stands won't fit for at least one reason: the seat sits right on its balance point. There's also the fact that the frame is made of square tubing, so many typical clamps become at least...

Any dedicated Trikers?

Hi all! Just joined and had a few questions. I am a disabled vet and just purchased an EZ 3 Tri Classic trike to get some exercise and get out of the house. Actually just got it a couple months ago but, have yet to ride it.:lol: At almost 50yrs of age, I haven't been on a bike for ages and am...

Spin out climbing a steep hill

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 00:37:59 GMT

After a few rides on my Catrike 700 I had a new experience. While climbing a very steep hill, or steep to me anyway (Garmin says 17%), I was staying close to the curb because of heavy traffic. About half of the width of the lane was wet for some reason. Anyway, my rear tire, or drive wheel,...

My bike clothes are not working well on the recumbent trike. Checking online and found there is a complete line of clothes just for recumbent riders, and even specific to the recumbent trike.

Anything special about the PodRide?

Hey guys, I am completely new to the concept of recumbent bikes/trikes/velomobiles, but I think I really want a velomobile to upgrade my daily commute. The most important things for me are safety, utility, and comfort, because I don't own a car of my own and I try to rely on my wife's car as...

Bought my first recumbent wooohooo!

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 01:02:00 GMT

I have been riding road bikes for about five years now. Rode with a local club several years ago. Now I mostly ride by myself. There is a MUP I usually ride on that is about ten miles long but at the end I take a country road another three miles or so and turn around. There are all kind of bikes...

I just purchased an old Cruser. Old. Could be one the first ones made. Is there anyway to find out?

Riding alongside upright bikes

I am new to recumbents and I wanted to know what I should keep in mind when riding alongside traditional bikes. What difficulties occur with mixed traffic?
