Got it second hand for $1,750 with a spare back tyre, speedometer, drink holder, small sling pack, clip in shoes and front & back lights. The front tyres will probably needs replacing soon, but other than that, bargain.


Always curious about these things, are there any advantages to bike on these than a normal road bike?

For me there would be: hard to fall off.

Yeah, I got a BW elite yesterday from Gamedude.

edit> $149, not $199 from Alltech,
The media keys work as expected running Amarok (first time a keyboard has worked for me out of the box)
The back light (Fn+F12) and and BIG letters are great when up late.
Seems you only need drivers to use macros and profiles, both winxpsp2 and gnu/Linux.
It's about 25mm longer than my old kb, logitech EX110.
And I'm loving not needing a desk lamp, clickety click. :)
<edit

I'm pretty happy with it, 'cept the Configurator program can't find the device, so no macro magic for me, yet.

Helps if you install the correct drivers. My bad. GW

Same with GNU/Linux, no macros.



Regards Glenn

is it wrong that I have an urge to strangle the mannequin?


yes I think it is


What're you talking 'bout? It's healthier strangling a mannequin than an actual person ... except in exceptional circumstances ;)


Fair enough.

also anyone who wonders how David Carradine and Michael Hutchins could go out like that clearly haven't held their breath for the last minute of a great shag.

Less damage to the panel work if you run one over.
Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

Yes and no, it depends how you hit it. A regular bike will pretty much ping away as the occupant flies into the air. Unlike a regular road/mountain/race bicycle, a recumbent trike has got a low and stable base and it, along with it's occupant, is far more likely to get wedged and 'cause the car to swerve and hit something more solid. So if nothing else, it makes me happy to think of taking out the blind bastard who smacked into me.

The main advantage for most people is greater speed/less effort - recumbent trikes and bikes are always faster than regular ones in race situations, which is why you don't see them competing in the same races.

For me the main advantage is that if I ride a regular bike I get unbearable upper back pain within about 30 minutes. In a recumbent I can ride for hours if needed.

Well, yeah. And lights. And those spike/scythe things poking out of the wheels to cut down my enemies.

*EDIT* Although while cycling in Perth, that mostly won't be necessary.
