Re: ICEs with full bounce

Dunno about suspension on your trike, but I agree about Moultons being quicker on the rough. I used to commute on an AM Jubilee up the Old Kent Road in London, and on the rough bits (= lots of it!) I could just keep pedalling when the DF riders had to coast with pedals at 3+6 just to keep rubber in ...

Re: White Lightning vs Progold ProLink

Re: Suitable Recumbent Clothing

Hmmm, two great suggestions! Interesting to read here that rowers often have had to use cycling clothing in the past - we're not the only ones struggling to find the right clothing for our pursuits.

Suitable Recumbent Clothing

Hi All First post here. I've ridden recumbents for quite a few years - I used a Greenspeed trike as my main transport in inner London for a few years, followed by an HP Velotechnik StreetMachine, on which I did a lot of touring, including extended trips in Sri Lanka and Vietnam. I've had no bike at ...
