Why Would You Buy A Recumbent Trike


This is a cyclist wrote on a bike forum:

I like riding uprights a lot more. The best thing about recumbents to me is that it allows some people to ride a bike who is not able to ride an upright. I ride brevets and most of the recumbent riders I meet on those rides had ridden uprights for years but for one reason or another, bad back, neck wrists, etc. couldn’t do long rides on an upright anymore, so they got a recumbent and are still out there riding. Just a couple weeks ago, I met a guy on a 600k who had been an ultradistance upright rider for years and switched to the recumbent because his back was starting to bother him on long rides.

Yes! Most of people prefer recumbent because the pain on the back, leg or can’t ride upright bike any more.

Nowadays, recumbent riding is even recommended by doctors frequently, it is helpful for curing illness. Someone has a degenerative condition or balance problem after injury or illness, going out with a recumbent trike for exercise to maintain fitness will be their eager.

However, also someone put his upright bike aside after trying the recumbent.
