recumbent in UK?

Posted By: Chris Rust

Hi, We are seriously considering a 2-wheeled recumbent tandem, which seem to be very popular in the USA but not here in Britain.

I'd be very pleased to hear from any UK owners of such bikes about their experience, especially if they would be willing to allow a test ride. We are interested in comfort rather than speed, anything that promises an end to burning saddles, aching wrists and numb hands seems worth a good look (yes we've tried most cures but they only reduce the problems).

The most popular recumbent 2-wheeler seems to be the Rans Screamer (http://www.ransbikes.com/Screamer07.htm) but we are also interested in the Barcroft Columbia which is designed for transportability (http://www.sandsmachine.com/a_barc_t1.htm)

best wishes from Sheffield
Chris
