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.

That happens occasionally. Shops have insurance. Plus, if they don't know you they'll usually want a driver's license to hold as a 'security deposit.' If you don't come back, they know where to look for you.

Yeah, but shop insurance probably doesn't cover the owners' personal bikes.

A lwb recumbent with stabilizer wheels may be just the ticket, just a bit of confidence, that will get people into lwb riding and may help move the huge backlog of lwbs for sale. And it is possible that eventually a much more expensive trike would be chosen.
