I guess the bike shop that did the last service doesn't often see recumbents...... :shock:

Surprisingly, yes, the main cross member was not even scratched.

However, not such good news further back for the edge of the seat support and a small section of the seat frame. Having worn through the upper surface of the tube, the chain took a chunk out of both - I'd estimate the seat support has lost 2-3mm off the right-hand edge, and the lower surface of the seat frame has a groove that'll need some form of repair.
