Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

Just picked up a used Bike E RX model recumbent bicycle for excellent price and will use it during the weekdays when the wife is at work and we aren't on our Terra Trike Rover Tandem. Anyone else still ride a Bike E?

BikeE CT is still a fun ride. Still gets curious looks. It's a nice way to putter down to the river and back on the local greenway (MUP).

Love Bike Es

I own four Bike Es. My friend just found a NOS Bike E2 tandem that my wife and I rode last weekend. So I’m on the hunt for one more.

Which of the Bike E’s were part of the federal safety recall? I worry about getting one because of that.

It was for the front forks on the Bike E2 Tandem.
