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.

Out on my e-tadpole today, so I thought I'd get a pic.

I have three bikes with hub motors, but another refreshing thing about this is the outboard motor - especially as the 12 gears are so widely spaced apart (13/34 cassette plus 3-speed hub). It does hills and speed, allowing me to enjoy The cats-eye view and understeer!

Ha! That's the first time i've seen someone using a remote crank to turn an armless master one - other than myself, when i built this:





Looks like our front ratios are similar too (30/38 but i have 28/40), good way to control an otherwise long chain whilst also adding in a final drive ratio.

Is your front fender the wrong way around? Or is it too low otherwise? I guess it doesn't need to be lower, as your legs are out the firing line.. Looks fun, anyways.
