Hmm… that was stupid!

For the last week, we were in Kellogg, Idaho, USA for the fourth annual Tater TOT. We took Penny’s EZ-3, my Mango, and one one VERY dead laptop! No laptop = no blogging, which explains but doesn’t excuse our silence for the last week. The lesson in the learning I guess is put a charger [...]

I’ve Become one of THEM!

By BRYAN J. BALL Managing Editor I’m not going to sugarcoat anything here. When I started this site ten years ago, I was a 24 year old punk who thought that most recumbent riders were complete geeks. I loved the bikes and most of the people that I met, but some of my readers provoked an eye [...]

It might be a complete drivetrain overhaul or something as simple as replacing the bar tape, but it seems I almost always have some project or another in the works.

There’s Ventisit… and then there’s Ventisit

Wim Schermer has posted a really interesting bit on the Ventisit fabric I use in the Mango, and an enourmous number of folks use on molded recumbent seats. I had no idea there was a closer weave version of this tremendous fabric (as Wim shows to the right in the photo above). Wim seems to [...]
