Re: Anyone selling a 2-wheel recumbent?

Thanks NUKe. I’ve got a smallish car park just round the corner, so shall take advantage of that. Still at death’s door though. Currently gripped by some kind of man flu :(

Re: Anyone selling a 2-wheel recumbent?

Thanks both. I aim to take it steadily. Felt quite rough today, so the maiden voyage has been postponed. I need to be on full capacity, high alert mode. I’ve got it all setup nicely for my size. Fingers crossed for a safe passage ;)

Re: Anyone selling a 2-wheel recumbent?

Spoke with Kevin at D-tek. Due to circumstances, that is another bike for another day. Meantime, I’ve bagged a Speedmachine, so the search is over. Just need to learn to ride it now :D

Re: Anyone selling a 2-wheel recumbent?

Thanks Squeaker. Funnily enough, I had already read that account a few days ago. I’ve been doing a lot of reading up lately, lol. Cheers for the additional info regarding that eBay example. I’d pretty much ruled it out anyway, but now you’ve left me in no doubt. I have a Schlumpf MD on my velomobile...

Guy, the for sales appear to vanish after a while - your for sale post doesn't appear in your user posts. Might be worth re-listing (and also on bhpc).


Thanks. I’ll have a peep :)

Re: Anyone selling a 2-wheel recumbent?

Whatcha looking for? You missed an Uber budget mistral on yacf, there are a couple metabikes selling on bhpc and I think there’s a lab going on this forum or yacf. Thanks for the heads-up. There is a very reasonably priced Mistral on eBay at the moment. Couldn’t find much positive said about them t...

SORTED - Recumbent 2 wheeler wanted

As per title.....

Anything considered, but must be cherished, as I’m not after a project. I’m 6’1”, and no lightweight so need something fairly substantial. Anyone got anything?

Cheers :)

Edit: Just bought a HPV Speedmachine so all sorted now, thanks.

Re: Velo test...

I’d love a go in a velo. I’m guessing the one that you tested is the one in Leicester. I’ve been eyeing that one up as well. Keep checking the ads just in case something a bit more suitable crops up. Really need to try before I buy, as I’m not even sure I can enter and exit one, being a little on th...

Re: recumbent riders where are we...

Hi, I have recently acquired an ICE QNT and I live just South of Solihull in the West Midlands. I haven't seen any other recumbents in this area. Does anyone live near me? Regards Janet Kidderminster is a bit recumbent-lacking too. If ever you fancy a half-way meet (Bromsgrove?), then I could sure ...
