This is my recumbent. Nothing special, just a stock 2006 Volae Expedition. I bought this bike for my 26 mile one way commute. It works well for that. I can carry what I need, and after spending 3 hrs in the saddle, I am not at all sore at the end of a day.
This bike is also fast! I’ve got a set of 1” tires I run when I’m feeling sporty. I made the 26 mile trip home in 1hr 6 minutes a few months ago. That’s an average speed of over 25 miles per hour. All that while laying down on an “old guy bike”? Yeah, recumbents do certainly have a place in the cycling world. Something you never really know until you try.
This bike doesn’t have character like some of my others, and I’m somehow not really attached to it, but when I ride it, I always have a huge grin on my face. —Jeremy
