If you're planning on big mileage then yeah spend the money on something you can change hand and arm positions on.

I love ridin my recumbent now but I wouldn't want to ride it in traffic.

Good luck and have fun! Mark H.

I think it's the gearing that's throwing me off. I'm peddaling to quick, like I'm stuck in 2nd gear (on my GS...).

To change the rear cassette, chain, chainring, front derailleur, and pedals (I have MTN bike style Bontrager clip ons (which float unlike road pedals), seems too expensive. I added it up and it would be like $400 and up to do.

Doesn't make sense since the frame is still ergo'd for MTN biking.

Thanks for the advice.
