For a groin injury, I'd steer clear of anything with a carbon or Euromesh seat (like the Giro.) They might work, but they might not. The Rocket or the trike would probably work OK though (hard to tell for sure without test-sits.) Prices seem OK but not great.

Looking though the list for Minneapolis, I saw this
I'd call him and verify that the bike he's selling is the recumbent in the second picture. If it is, that's a RANS Vivo which is relatively rare and always desirable. Get it if you can!
I fixed the link - thanks for pointing it out. I had kind of dismissed the other Rans Rocket advert that you highlight, because there was so little desccprition and the photo was so casual. It makes it hard to judge the condition of the bike. But I'll look in to it.

I sort of suspected that the Giro would be less favorable for my condition - that's why I posted. The point that Steamer made above, that it might have to do with seat angle is a good one, but I think I'll investigate the to Rans bikes first.
