    Wait - wut? You said "another" recumbent trike? What do you have now? I stopped at a local healthcare facility tonight to visit a buddy of mine who also rides a recumbent. He broke his femur and will probably move to a recumbent trike next. He's looking at an ICE VTX+. Here's a review from BROL. I've always liked the Catrike 700.

    I currently ride a Bacchetta CA 2. Very, very comfortable esp when I've got a long distance to ride. It's interesting to ride behind guys who are constantly shaking out their hands after only an hour or two or shifting around in the saddle after 4-5 hours of riding.

    Yep - I pretty well suck at climbing. I just sit back and spin...eventually, I get there.

    That is super cool.

    I saw a husband and wife tandem like that while out on a ride over the summer.

    I needed something to mount a child seat on for the little guy. This was on my LBS' floor as a 2010 hold-over and they made me a deal I couldn't refuse:

    And now it looks like this:

    Our first official ride was a 30min each way trek to his class at MyGym. He loved it. :clap And yeah, that's how he smiles for the camera.

    Mine was a Windcheetah design by Mike Borrows in England, really fun and fast but with two drum brakes in the front stopping was pretty scary since they thing got the tendency to steer abruptly to one side..

    Sorry I don't have pictures of it but her is one from the net.

    I wish..... A gal used it to ride to the south pole. I find myself drawn to it though. Someday maybe.

    Let us know when you do.

    Is it similar in cost to shipping a conventional bike?

    I had a Catrike Speed for awhile. It was a lot of fun, but I did not like riding it on public roads. I always felt I was about ready to get squashed.

    I've narrowed it down to 'earth'. Or 'Baltimore'.
    :stupid

    I've got one wrapped in a tarp under the house. I rode it halfway across Missouri on the Katy. I rode it a little bit on the streets in a small city of ~100k people. :nah No driver ever saw me.

    Plus you couldn't stand on the pedals to take chatter out of a road or trail. You just had to sit there & take it. No thanks.
