Thanks! Turns out I have a trike dealer only 20 minutes from me. But after looking at the p-38 it would seem I prefer that style but it is out of my budget. There is a lot to learn indeed.

You also must know what size bike fits you properly. Local bike shops will help you with that, even if you do not buy from them. Test ride some bikes to find out your size. Scout around prices.

I can only get a 25mm on the front and 28mm on the rear of my Lynskey 265. But I went tubeless with continental 5000 GPS and it helps some with the bumps. Way better than non-tubless.

It seems to me that flat bar bikes have longer top tubes that road bikes. If you just switch handles bars on a road bike the reach will be much, much shorter. Might need a new bike.
