This is the first recumbent in this thread!

This is a really fun bike to ride. Since I broke my collarbone & bent the metal repair, my days of diamond framed bikes are probably over.

Great on downhills & flats, but not very good at climbing hills. I've got a Windwrap fairing for it, but haven't had it installed in a very long time. The fairing works great. Very effective in windy conditions, too. But man, does it get hot behind that thing climbing hills.

Clamp that bike by the seat post never on one of the frame tubes. Some bikes the tubes are too thin and may crush, and the finish may be damaged.

It's TSX, and the Olmo is SP. With my Carbon, and Alu rigs, the seat post for sure....been using that stand since 1989, with no paint or tube damage. The clamp doesn't exert much clamping force, and the jaws are quite soft.

Back in my racing days, we had the opportunity to talk with the pros at some of our dimly attended local races, early in the season. Laura Charameda (sp?) was the girlfriend of Roberto Gaggioli and they showed up each year. Laura had a BRAND NEW Cannondale bike that Roberto had crushed in just that manner days before the event. It was a perfect Colnago type diamond tube shape after the Roberto treatment in a Park Tool stand. She rode it anyhow, as she did not have a replacement on hand.

We all concluded she could ride a dog turd and be hot (not related to the story, but the reason I remember her name).

Here's mine.



It's blue.

I also have a white styrofoam helmet. And some bike shoes that clip into those metal pedal thingies.

Oh, and 2 white water bottles.
