After all of the latest storms we’ve had, it’s good we’ll be getting effectively over every week of good climate. I took benefit of it yesterday with a little bit over two hours of brisk driving to the west after which southeast.
I’ve my recumbent arrange in a brand new configuration with two small 20″ (iso 406 mm) wheels and the seat from my previous bike. That is comfy however significantly extra aerodynamic than the previous bike so it’s sooner. Yesterday was my first lengthy check of this setup and I actually prefer it. With skinnier (28 mm) tires it’s quick on smoother roads. With fatter tires like 32 or 38 mm it will possibly deal with rougher roads. If I wish to be sooner, like for doing a Strava report try, I can put the larger 28 inch (700c or iso 622 mm) wheels on and the brand new seat which is rather more reclined. Switching among the many configurations takes a matter of minutes now that I’m used to it. It’s good to have this type of versatility out of 1 bike. Due to this I now solely personal two bikes which has freed up some cupboard space within the storage. This additionally helps in dialog, as I don’t have to elucidate to non-cyclisting fans why I want three bikes (which will get a little bit delicate…).
