Hi, all, I am an upright, DF rider who has had problems and is considering a recumbent. Rode one from a shop this weekend and rode longer (in time), farther and with less pain (read NONE) in some vital areas than I have in a year. I am becoming a believer. Now, a question: Riders of regular road and off-road bikes (I live in Florida and refuse to call them "mountain" bikes; we don't have mountains, we have overpasses) have mail-order and online sources of gear, like Nashbar and Performance. Is there anyone catering to 'bent riders? I know any decent LBS will carry things like the proper-size tires and tubes, but prices are another matter. Is someone specializing in mail/online orders for recumbent riders? Don't know just when or what I will buy, but I really like the Easyracer EZ-1 AC I rode yesterday. Other than the manufacturer, does anyone handle the parts and accessories for that or any other make/model? I realize this is a novice's question, but how else do you win converts but by being civil to the newbies? Appreciate any help. Thanks. Will I drive a Kia. My cell phone is a NOkia. I am so confused.
