Registration for the 2009 RBR Recumbent Bike and Trike Rally is now open.  We're a flexible lot, so you can register both online and offline as we have harnessed the latest and greatest technology (PayPal, printers) to give you the options you deserve.

The registration fee is $60, which gets you the Friday evening buffet, Saturday evening meal and entertainment, the Saturday/Sunday rides, tuning, and demos.

If you've never been to an RBR Rally before, be sure to read up on it so you know what to expect.  Mostly, though, expect a great time!

We'll put together a rally resources guide soon to lay out the local restaurants and lodging.

 
RBR to carry Carbent
Written by Travis Prebble

RBR is proud to announce that we will soon partner with Bent Up Cycles to be the exclusive northeast carrier of the CarBent line of recumbents.

Details are still in the works, but we plan to have at least one CarBent on the shop floor for your perusal.

Need info and photos?  Okay!

These beautiful bikes are light-weight, fast and built with the highest quality materials and components!

Filament wound carbon fiber tubes yield the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any carbon fiber tubing. Our tubes are custom-wound to exact Carbent HPV specifications, and have a breaking strength of 800,000 psi (as a comparison, titanium 3/2.5 is 89,900 psi and Aluminum 7005 is 50,800 psi).

Combine a beautifully hand-built frame with quality components, including Velocity Uriel wheels, FSA Gossamer cranks, and an Ultegra drivetrain, and you get a bike that is truly irresistable. And at less than 19 pounds, you won’t be carrying any extra weight up the next hill. The seat is fixed at 28 degrees. No, it isn’t adjustable. But it means that every watt of power goes directly from your pedals to the rear wheel. This bike will truly amaze you and your riding buddies!

2009 RBR Rally set for June 12-14

The moment you've all been waiting for is here!  We now have the dates for the 2009 RBR Recumbent Bike and Trike Rally.  Or, for short, the 09RBRRBTR.

Festivities will begin the evening of June 12th with our usual pre-rally social hour and route review.  Then we'll meet up Saturday morning at the Military Museum in Boalsburg to start the rides, demo some bents, and get together later for dinner and conversation.  On the 14th, one last ride for those able to stay in town an extra few hours.

Details will be up on our Rally page by the end of the week, and we're hoping to allow for online registration and payment this year.

Speaking of payment, we'll be raising the price of the rally $5 this year to $60. We hope this won't be too much of an inconvenience, but the increase was necessary to make sure we at least break even this year.

We hope to see many old friends and plenty of new ones at the rally, so spread the word!

Recovering stolen bikes with a sticker
Written by Travis Prebble

Can I share a secret with everyone?  Recumbent bikes are a little pricey.  There, I said it.

As such, the last thing you want to have happen is to have it stolen and never returned.  There are the usual preventive measure to be followed: employing good locks; knowing your environment; buying a recumbent so unique that nobody could ever sell it without you noticing.

But what if it does get stolen?  How will you get it back?
