New Recumbent General.

This thread is made for the discussion of velomobiles, all kinds of two-wheeled recumbents and open tricycles.

BaconRider is welcome.

FAQ
>Why do people ride a recumbent?
Comfort. A recumbent is extremely comfortable, since your whole back is supported, your vision is undisturbed and there is no strain on any part of your body.
Also, depending on the type and model of recumbent, they are more aerodynamic then uprights and thus also faster.

>Why are velomobiles so expensive?
They are cheaper then high end carbon bikes if you compare the building hours-to-price. If you use one to replace your car, it will save you money in a few years of usage. If you're to poor to afford a new one, buy a second hand one, they go for about 3000e, but I've seen them for 1000e.

A few video's for the interested:

I'm not a bent rider myself (reasons). But on an upright bike, when my heart rate goes above 150 for extended periods, I tend to dip my head down periodically to help blood flow to my brain.
Do you think the prone rider position of a 'bent gets more blood flow to the brain?

On a recumbent, the rider's legs are nearly at the same height as the heart. This reduces the rider's hydrostatic pressure, thus allowing venous blood to more easily return to the heart and brain. This physiological effect of improved circulation suggests an increase in rider endurance and/or increased power output on long rides. Recumbent riders are not bent over as are conventional bike riders, and this makes breathing easier.

For longer journeys in flat terrain bents are by far the best choice. However in cities or on a hilly environment I'd much rather be on an upright.

>>855028
You're talking to a different anon there, friend. You also seem a little bent out of shape over the common 4chan usage of the word 'faggot'. Are you new? :^)

Aero is the single biggest factor involved when trying to go fast, and when trying to conserve energy while going fast. You should know this. Recumbents manage to improve aero drastically while sacrificing a bit of climbing ability and pretty much all serious offroad ability. This makes them a superior road bike. I don't give a shit about that recumbentfag's shitposting or your autistic counter-shitposting. None of that changes the facts.

(If you're wondering, no, I don't ride a recumbent. Partly because they're expensive, but more importantly because I live in a place where all the buses have bike racks designed to support upright wheelbases.)

>Are Recumbent good at climbing?
Bicycles suck at climbing m8, it's the rider that climbs.

>Can you go off road with one?
Sure why not, tour recumbents can handle rough terrain, although they are not made for actual mountainbiking. If you want to mountainbike, buy a fucking mountainbike https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ekefr3xH3y8
Although it looks stupid as fuck, but roadbikes also aren't meant for mountainbiking.

>How do you bunny hop?
You can't bunny hop, unless you ride a flevobike with clipless pedals. But remember- only lightweight upright bicycles can bunnyhop with the rider. Heavy upright bicycles, such as DUTCH BICYLES, can't bunny hop.

>Aren't most people using recumbent handicapped in some way?
People with stability issues often use trikes, people with leg issues often use handbicycles. Somehow these bikes often are recumbent, for various goddamn good reasons.
any lowracer or fwd or two wheeled aren't fit for the handicapped tho.

I see tons of old people or handicapped people riding 3 wheeled upright tricycles with SADDLES, does that mean that a lot of handicapped people ride uprights???

now get ready FOR BANEZ

>>
>>855514
>but who cycles purely to climb??
But climbing is what really makes cycling for me. Given that I live in a fairly flat area but climbing is why I keep on riding. All those hours spend riding are just in preparation for when I get to somewhere I can really climb. Also one of the reasons why I use a carbon road bike as an everyday bike.

It's great, and much cheaper then M5. However, they are a little bit heavier (+/- 13) kilograms. Unless you want to drop more for the carbon version. But the weight isn't going to make a big diffrence
>>
>>855577
No, recumbents are a niche-product. If you want a recumbent you must be willing to drop money on it.

If you're lucky you can buy one on craigslist for under 500$. Or you must be willing to buy out of Europe (Holland) where recumbents can be bought for like 300$, but shipping will be costly.

Why are they more expensive? They're not very popular- almost all recumbents are made by hand in small factories in Europe and America with decent loans and good materials, unlike mass produced BSO's from China.

5 days a week for 8 years to primary school,

5 years to high school 15 kilometer to and 15 km back, 5 days a week

then to university for 6 years, 5 days a week
and I still cycle almost everyday, and you say ''were casuals'' because we ride in normal clothing on a normal bike and don't use racing bikes for everyday use. you know what, fuck you and fuck this board with these pseudo cyclists, let me tell you who is the real cyclist, the real cyclist is not the one who rides a shiny bike in gay tight clothing, but the real cyclist is one who learns to ride when he is a kid and continues to ride one all his life, and his primary bike weights 18 kilogram

We don't all live in flatlandia, there are many valleys and hills here, so being able to climb is an absolutely necessity.

>>855597
>>855598
Yet >>855589 never mentioned that someone who rides a regular city bike in normal clothes isn't a real cyclist. Both of those types of people are real cyclists. You're even worse as you're trying to imply that some cyclists aren't actually real cyclists and that only a certain group of people that ride on a bike according to your completely arbitrary set of rules are so called real cyclists while others are just pretenders.

The real difference between the lycra clad carbon riding cyclists and cruiser riding guy in jeans is that for one of them cycling is a hobby and for the other it's just a means of transportation. Then there are people who fall somewhere between these two groups of people who do cycling for various reasons, some of them even bikes are both a hobby and means of transportation. All of them are real cyclists though. Dare I say even the recumbent riders are real cyclists. However just because you're a cyclist doesn't mean that you're serious about it or that it's your hobby.

I'm also 24, I've been riding a bike for 20 years. 10-15 km to school and back 5 days a week and trips to football games and trainings on top of that. Now I commute on my bike. It doesn't matter if it's -30 degrees C outside and there's 2 meters of snow or if it's raining and +5 or if it's sunny and +30. I don't commute on lycra but on regular clothes, on a warm day I might put on a jersey and change that once I get to work.

Then on the weekends and after work I get myself into lycra, hop onto the same carbon road bike I commute during the summers and ride. I've been a cyclist for almost all my life. However I've only been serious about it for the last few years. Before that it was just a means of transportation.

Drivetrain efficiency isn't a concern because it's outweighed by the aero gains. On the other hand low gears for climbing are even more important because you can't stand on the pedals or use your arms with a recumbent.

If u want clean looks u can get either FWD, MBB, Driveshaft, or enclosed drivetrain.

Lowracers almost always have long loose chains since these offer least drivetrain loss, but you sacrifice practicality, but most lowracers aren't used in public anyway unless you have a deathwish.

Why you ask? Knee injury. The recumbent design puts too much stress on my knees. I never suffered from knee injury on an upright. So that's why I went back to a roadbike. I probably could have solved it with getting a better position, but I was quite bored of riding a recumbent anyway. Too much negative attention I get, everywhere I go, I like recumbents, that's not it, but a good one is too expensive for me, I had a cheap second hand one. Maybe in the future I will buy one again, if I have more money. Right now I prefer the roadbike, I'm actually faster on it.

Welp, there are other factors (and I am a recumbentfag).
A lot of people have problem with "numb feet" when riding recumbents, and the higher your feet are relative to your heart seems to be the major factor in that.

I would agree totally that riding a recumbent is less strenuous than an upright; none of your upper body muscles have to work much on a recumbent.
If all you have is upright bikes, then you might think that staying balanced on an upright "doesn't take much effort" ,,,,,,,, but it does take quite a bit. You don't see that until you ride something that requires drastically less.

Yeah I have that in the winter, I only if I wear a type of shoes, weird. A tintling sensation.
When I ride a more upright recumbent it goes away. A recumbent with the knees not as high as the heart. But In the summer I don't get the tingling sensation, not even on lowracers. So it probably has to do with the cold too

It weights only 24 kilogram, which is extremely light for a velomobile.

Although I agree it's too low.

They builders of the Go-One evo also make an open top version, the Go-One evo S (see pic) That is one of the fastest and lightest velomobiles in the world (22kg) .

How low can your gears be on a recumbent?
Because if you can fit a MTB drivetrain on it, say a 44-32-22 / 11-36, i don't see climbing ever being a problem. Given the low gravity center slow speeds at the lowest gears wouldn't even impede stability. Although given how fast recumbent are on the flat compared to uprights you might run out of gear at the upper end.

They ride because it's cheap. Their bikes are mostly in terrible shape. If they could, they'd use a car. But that's ineffective in the main cities due to a lack of parking and busy roads in rush hour.

Having many cycle paths also helps. Without those I wonder how many "true" cyclist would still keep riding.

A bike with a lower gearing than you'd usually have and as little superfluous weight as possible.

Usually when you see "climbing bike" it's just a marketing term, but it's not unusual for pro racers (or ordinary riders who live near mountains) to have a second bike that's preferred for days that will feature lots of climbing.

Disadvantages of recumbents compared with normal bicycles:

2. Absolutely can't climb
3. Prone to cause ass and back sores as you can't change position
4. Expensive, low end components
5. Incredibly heavy, even the carbon ones
6. Impractical for daily life
7. Can't sprint
8. Socially disabling
9. Cringe-inducing, fetish-oriented recumbent community
10. Has absolutely no visibility in traffic

Very poor design: the thumb is at the other end of the grip, so it can not be used to grip the shifter. The only way to bring it into use would be to release one's hold on the grip and raise the arm, but flexing the shoulder with the forearm pronated like that would be extremely uncomfortable, and possibly beyond the capabilities of someone with shoulder mobility issues.

You realize you're not supposed to grab a fistful of brakes, right? I can move my hand down an inch and have my full hand on them if I wanted to. I had some little girl run out in front of me on saturday, and I had no problem stopping in time. I legitimately have no idea what you think the problem is, but I can only assume you've never ridden a bike?

600 bucks is decent. It seems to me the original mesh seating is gone and replaced with what you have now. If it works leave it, but if it isn't as comfy, consider replacing it.
>>
>>908132
I'm really not sure if it was replaced or how it came stock. It's a TW bent arrow according to the guy I bought it from, which has a mesh seat. But TW bent made another trike called the apoyo, which I think was the same thing but with webbing instead. It's pretty comfortable, so I'm just going to leave it.

I'm not sure. I think it's some kind of gently crushing depression. Psych wasn't much help though.

>>908131
You realise your index finger is your most dexterous, right? Why would you want to release your entire hand from the grip in an emergency manoeuvre? I have ridden many bikes - none of them have had brake levers mounted backwards.
>>
>>908217
you can move your hand down without releasing the grip. How do you think they're supposed to be mounted? can you provide a picture?

I challenge you to show me any owner's manual which countenances any other orientation.

Yeah best to leave it then. One of the advantages of having seating like that is the improved ventilation and water resistance.

Welcome to recumbent cycling anyway. If you ever meet another recumbent cyclist don't forget to greet, were a close family

holding the bar with your index and middle and braking with the rest isnt too bad either, unless you are a weak willy.

If you had any confidence you would not need to hide behind your motorbike.

I actually just ride a motorcycle because I don't like being stuck inside a cage. It has nothing to do with hiding behind a motorbike. I used to ride a Vespa before that.

>>911046
I got a question. How bad do motorbikes smell for the rider ? When they zip pass they really stink. I always hold my breath.
>>
>>911049
Not that bad. Exhaust smells on older motorcycles, modded motorcycles with catalytic converters removed, and especially 2 strokes. This is why I hate the 2-stroke motor bicycle kits. Not only are they 2 strokes, they're poorly made 2 strokes that haven't passed any sort of emissions regulations.
