A bike that doubles as a recliner? Always see folks on these around the DMV. I don't get it. These are right up there w/ those mobile ellipticals...smh. Actually saw some lady cruising along on one using the bike trail the other day.

what do you hate about them?  They look dumb?  Do you hate all bikers?

 

No shade...i actually hate bikers i am a city driver and they are forever in traffic breaking every traffic law.  Just because you are on a bike doesn't mean you can run stop signs or red lights like oh no one is coming....you are a vehicle....obey the law

I loathe bikers who are inconsiderate. Now that I moved, I don't encounter them as much as I did before. Couldn't tell you the number of times some of these morons would be slowing down traffic. FWIW, a lot of them have the same amount of road rage as those in cars.

if i remember correctly, these bikes take the stress off the back and give you more power in the legs or something like that

 

around my way, alot of the older people ride them. They said they couldnt ride a regular bike and a recumbent bike was the only form of exercise they could do.

 

i cant imagine why younger would ride these, let alone in the city :lol

yeah it's really awesome; I live in Conshohocken currently and it's great stopping off at the Conshohocken Brewery on your way back; the back entrance is right on the trail

I never understood the logo until just now...mind blown laugh.gif

You know that practically all speed records for bikes are set on recumbents right?

The aerodynamics are way better than a "regular" bike. The only thing you can't do well is go uphill. They're also no good for commuting - visibility is poor - both for you to see and for you to be seen.
