I'll be honest - I really fancy a recumbent. However, they do seem devilishly expensive. So I'm really torn between whether or not to buy a 2nd hand recumbent (if I can find one) or a new road bike for my daily commute (currently 4 miles each way, hoping to upgrade to 6 soonish). So, in the following price brackets, what do you think is possible? £300-£500 - This is the most likely bracket for me at the moment, but I don't think I'm likely to get a recumbent for this price, even 2nd hand, although given that this is only £625 new, it might be possible? £500-£750 - Presumably a possibility for 2nd hand? £750-£1000 - Presumably entering new recumbent price range? As far as I can tell, most bent bikes are in the £800 - £1500+ range; trikes tend to be a little pricier. Am I getting my hopes up, or should I just give up and admit that for the little money available I'm better off with a decent road bike?
