Hi All,

I think my next bicycle will be a recumbent. Do any of you ride recumbents? What do you like/dislike about them? How fast can you get them going? How far can you go? Are they worth the price tag?

I used to have a TerraTrike recumbent Trike, not the greatest for high speed but I got about 20 mph on it (I'm not a big pedaler) check out the ICE trike if you are curious about trikes, THAT was a sweet ride!

They are more difficult to see than regular bikes are. Maneuverability in emergency situations seems more difficult.
 
See where your hand is? Not there. It's next to this tiny ad:
