I'll ask it again since bnet1 rides a bent. What is it with older riders and bents? I just don't get it. I tried riding one once, and just like mountain bikes, it wasn't my kinda bike. So what's the big fascination with bents?

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
