Re: I may have to become Non Standard.

Hi Stuart. I shall have a Nazca Fuego in my possession next week. I am also based in Worcestershire, Kidderminster to be precise. If you would like to try it out for comfort you would be more than welcome. At least it would give you an idea for that type of geometry to help narrow your search. So ma...

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...

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 ...
