    I know that recumbent bicycles are considered strange and weird to most conventional bike riders. My interest has become building recumbent bikes, and I'm just wondering if I can actually fit in here? I still use many conventional components, I just create a very different frame type. My current project is what's known as a "lowracer." This is an apt description as the lowest point of the seat is about nine inches off the ground. I'm just wondering if anyone else here has similar interests?

    If you have a sick sense of humor you will fit in fine

    We can already see that you are twisted cause you ride a "bent"

    Do you like gladiator movies?

    You seem like a regular, well adjusted member of society.


    I doubt it'll work out :banana:

    That probably would depend on the definition of great.

    Ahhh. Gee, I don't know. I'm sure my current project, a "lowracer:," is probably too low for good ground clearance. I do have a "short wheel base" recumbent that has plenty of ground clearance. Maybe that could make it as a mountain bike. :wait:

    Not yet, but then again I've never been to Turkey.

    To be fair, it took me awhile to figure out that was a thing... and sometimes i still forget.
    He's stacking up them messages though.
