Looking for a recumbent.

Hi all. Just on the lookout for a decent recumbent. Primarily looking for a 2-wheeler, but would maybe consider a trike. Anybody got anything lurking at the back of the garage?

Hi Nigel

I think, at 6’1”, I may be a bit big. Appreciate the offer though :smile:

I'm think of selling on one of my two-wheeled bents, probably the Nazca Paseo. Lovely bike but I prefer a more upright seat. Whereabouts are you?
The Paseo sounds very interesting. A few more details would be good. I live in Worcestershire, but work down South, so Portsmouth would be feasible.

I bought the frameset from laid back bikes. Carbon seat (medium size), carbon Meks/Saso fork, midships (detachable) and rear racks, mudguards, aerobars. Has 10-speed gearing and a compact double, but left shifter is for a triple. I've used it for a short tour in Holland and a few day rides and that's about it. Currently fitted with various lightweight bits to make it more sporty which I'd probably look to keep and swap out. Are you looking to tour or just use it for day rides?

In my head, I’m off touring. In reality, probably day rides, lol. Don’t think I could get away with a medium seat though as I’m 6’1” and heavier than I would like.
