A confession on recumbent bikes

By johnboy - 10 August 2006 34

Many of you have weirdly strong views on the subject of the mostly harmless recumbent cyclist.

Maybe gangs of recumbent cyclists raided your village in the mountains, killing your father, raping your mother, and sold you off to a life of slavery? Maybe you freed yourself from the recumbent cyclist’s slave fighting pits and lived a life of pillage and adventure before settling in Canberra?

Maybe you’ve been revolted by the hedonistic abandon for which the recumbents are famed?

Or maybe things that are different just make you feel uncomfortable because you’re insecure in your own sexuality?

In any event, while I’ve never ridden one of the things, I must confess there appears to be one parked in my living room this very morning.

Recumbent bicycle

And I’m sorry to report to you it’s been here for some time.

Yes, I’ve said it before, we really are out to get you.

What’s Your opinion?

Where’s your orange flag? or have you just taken out a large life insurance policy?

I would love to know what percentage of bent cyclists have had a skirmish with a car…

ah yes that would be grand… I reckon the only difficult bit would be trying to find two other people that equally share the idiotic ideal that a goodies is practical and safe!!

I’d like a Goodies bike….

futons are great…. someone should build a futon style recucumbent bike….maybe with 3 wheels instead of two…

How did you know?

Two futons sofas actually, and the picture is crystal clear thanks to a digital box thank you.

Nooo –

I talked too early – Those are definetely rabbit ears…. Your telly reception must be fuzzy, as the NCDC demanded it to be.

Damn NCDC – They should have never gone away – Far too many tele antennas on rooftops if you ask me.

Ahh,

All is forgiven.. I see you have one of those cool futon matress sofa bed thingos.

Can your balance handle such a beast JB?

truth to tell we’re not real keen on either off-road or in-the-wet.

If it gets parked in the lounge regularly I would hate to have to clean the wheels every time it rains before bringing it in the house.

Poles (and the smoking therof) are always found in association with recumbent bikes.

Big Al 11:01 am 10 Aug 06

I’m not sure what’s most disturbing – the bike or the exposed brick feature wall.

I particularly like the way you have included a print of Blue Poles in the background 🙂
