Really? I would have thought that was one of the easiest all round bents to live with provided you are tall enough.

After a month,I decided to manage my elbow problems by adapting my upright.To be honest,it was a relief to get back on it,particularly on hills.Yes,I know you need 5oo-1000mls to get conditioned but would knees be compromised,it felt like a possibility.Its "un-handiness",for want of a better word,was another small grouch.The only advantage was comfort over distance.I,ve satisfied curiosity but cutting the experiment short.

The force is not strong in this one.

Good luck Cyclop you know when things aren't right. Hope you sell it quickly.

How much are you selling it for?

I hope that's not too much like taking advantage of things, but I've got a recumbent itch and I'm 6'5" tall so height to ride it might not be an issue.

Not sure if I'm interested or not but if you're selling it then letting us know how much on here can't hurt. It certainly looks a nice bike.
