- offroad recumbent……..
I recently saw a guy on a off road recumbent on the bridleways around Luton. This guy was travelling had trouble catching up with him eventually did when he had to stop for a step through gate. Asked him about the bike – It was long wheelbase version and he reckoned it was very stable and quick on smooth trails but as Tommid mentions above no good on anything technical.Posted 6 years agoz1ppyMember
That video looks down right scarry, WTF?Posted 6 years ago
But Realman’s second pic of the 3 wheeler is intersting, what is it?
A young lad round here has one, not spoken to him about it but watched him happily cycle under a single bar forestry gate without hesitation (was bemused to see a recumbant & too dazed to get him to stop & talk).
DH go karting? I can see this ending horribly.
Well seeing as the competitors are allready parralised from the waste down in most cases, I think there’s little alternative…
I reckon Riding a recumbent on the road is probably a more dangerous activity, considering how much some drivers hate normal bikes, Christ knows what sort of rage they’d fly into when presented with a recumbent occupying a whole lane, and if they don’t get you the dizzy bints in range rovers who can’t see over the dashboard certainly will…
DH karting is the future… FACT! *
