anything you can tell me would help about maybe going over to a recumbent.
Thank you for your time.

The fastest recumbents are much faster than a TT bike, but very difficult to learn to ride. The Cruzbike V20 and M5 Carbon High Racer are in this category. At 220W I am riding 27MPH. But there is a learning curve. A much easier option is a high racer. It is going to be a little slower because it is less aero, but also lighter. Dana at BentUp (or used bike forums) can set you up.

The bike is faster all around because the CdA is tiny.
