    Hi @kerryw
    I have a Performer 2w recumbent - I live down the A41 not far from you. If you need help with the Performer I may be able to advise. Good pieces of kit though.

    I've been laid back since 1998, when I bought my first bikeE at Bikefix. I upgraded from that bikeE 'AT' model to a bikeE 'RX' a few years later, just before the bikeE corporation folded, and it's still going pretty well.

    About four years ago I added to the stable by buying a second-hand Ratcatcher 9, made by Mike Burrows.

    Both bikes are great fun to ride, but the latter is an absolute dream, especially on a good road. Mike envisaged it as a fast day bike or weekend tourer, but I have pressed it into service for some longer rides. The furthest I've been on it so far is the south of France and back.

    Another recumbent rider checking in.

    I started in about 2003 with a Windcheetah, then added a HP Velo Speedmachine in about 2005. I bought a Lightning P-38 in 2007 and sold the other two (I loved the SpM but had endless knee trouble), then bought a RANS V-Squared a couple of years after that for touring. I now divide my time about equally between my P-38, which I really love to bits, and my carbon Quest velomobile which is fast, comfortable, warm, huge, impractical, and lots of fun.

    I have a Triaid / Theraplay Tracer!!! What's that you say. It's classed as a motability aid which I bought yesterday & hope to convert to a more user friendly trike with gears & QR wheels.:bicycle: Details will emerge when I'm approved.

    New recumbent rider from the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.
    I purchased a second-hand Performer 700 to try my hand at a new skill.
    It has been a steep learning curve with only slight injuries. I am taking the recumbent to the Netherlands for my holiday as I need some flat land to try some distance trips.
