Just curious if anyone else here rides a 'bent. I've just been getting more and more excited as I continue looking for my own :)
I'm currently in the market and have test rode a Bacchetta Strada, Volae (something or other), Rans Rocket and a no name unknown import SWB. I'm also waiting to hear back about a partially built M5 frame (think "sports car" class of 'bents). And don't forget my homebuilt abomination :D
Today I rode a no name something or other found on Craigs List... In my home town too! It's not exactly what I'm looking for (it's too recreational for me), but almost exactly perfect for my father.
It's got absolutely garbage components, but I see potential in it. It is, however, a dog on weight - ~40 pounds. But that's not an issue because there's no hills :D
The seat is also a POS, so never mind the makeshift seat back made from bike inner tubes. <--- totally awesome by the way. But I think with a new seat, some cable management, better handlebar/stem and at the very least - new shifters -- it will be fun, reliable and a more road worthy 'bent.
The price was right for this thing too :p Cheaper than an upright from walmart :D
