- A bike in the seated position usually has two wheels and powered by pedaling with your legs although some are hand powered. Also referred to as bents.

Finally out of the shop. I painted out the scratches on the frame (mostly from shipping). My mechanic and friend Bikedave added a new derailleur (old one damaged in shipping), and replaced most of the worn drivetrain with parts that still had a lot of life in them, including new(er) disc brakes to replace the creaky old ones. Also new brake levers. I added a vintage Watersnake bottle cage and a new seat cover. Hopefully I'll get some riding in before the rains hit. This is my first recumbent. I'm very fond of my diamond frame bikes, but haven't been able to ride them lately, so giving benties a shot. I did my first real ride on the bike on the Iron Horse Trail a week ago Sunday and it was lovely! I do keep hearing though, that "friends don't let friends ride recumbents". Some bike geeks tend to hate folding bikes and recumbents. I'm just trying to get on down the road. It's human powered wheels. OK in my book. It's either the bus or this just now.
