To day my friend Cal let me ride his ReBike. It’s a 21 speed, with multiple sprockets on both front and back. it’s not as reclined as I expected, but still a lot more than a regular bike. The seat is vaguely like a tractor seat, which is to say very comfortable.
The front tire is a lot smaller than the back, and I didn’t anticipate how significantly different it would feel. It was particularly difficult to get started. I leaned over quite a bit in high speed turns, and was afraid to pedal while turning, but when I stopped and check how much space I had, my fears proved unfounded.
All in all, it was very fun. It whetted my ambition to try a fully reclined bike, but until someone I know gets one, it’ll have to wait.
