If you've never given it a decent try, you'd never know; claiming it for truth is just ignorance.

If it was a couple years back, and the bent was a blue VRex, that mighta been me.

What you get on a bent that you'll NEVER get on an upright, is a wonderfully relaxed and perfectly comfortable cruise while being able to look at the stars in a night sky on a summer evening.

I gave up my bent because I really hated above seat steering. Underseat steering is, in my opinion, the only way to go on a bent.

Really? put as many miles on a recumbent as a road bike in one month? that would be a fair trial.

I have heard great things about recumbents and I have also heard good things about bikes with the small wheels. You don't see many of them around though.

Small wheeled bikes or folding bikes are fun, I have a Tikit for my commute into Philadelphia. Folding bikes are great if you want to take a bike with you onto public transportation like trains, subways or buses.

After searching Craigslist for a suitable commuter/multipurpose bike, I've come to the conclusion that if you're not looking for a thrashed BMXer, department store MTB, overpriced cruiser, or a $300 rusted out POS "that would make a gr8 fixie!":puke1, you're pretty much S.O.L.

Then I saw this: http://chico.craigslist.org/bik/1542731168.html

I thought it might be good for a laugh, and a wince.

I got one of them, too. (Actually a beefed up Pocket Llama)

They're all over here in Seattle where people lead more adventurous and diverse lifestyles.

Very nice. If I had any excuse to own a folding bike, I'd have one.
