Where has eBent Been?

with 9 comments

The good news is that eBent/Roland is doing really well. He’s lost 50 pounds and is cycling more than ever. The bad news is that after losing 50 pounds he’s gone back to the dark side and is riding a diamond frame again and loving it.

I was burnt out on recumbent cycling and riding the diamond frame has reignited my interest. Riding is fun again. We all need change to keep the fun in cycling alive. I purchased a Surly Long Haul Trucker and am planning Spring and Summer tours now.

Hope everyone had a great Holliday and is looking forward to spring riding. Right now I am on the elliptical machine at the gym and trying to stay in shape.

I am in a bit of a quandary on what to do with eBent. I want to keep talking about touring and bicycling but don’t feel comfortable talking about recumbent cycling if I am not riding a recumbent. I do have over 10 years of recumbent touring experience that I enjoy sharing but it feels less fresh every day.  I am thinking of taking eBent in a more general Touring direction. I still have 5 recumbent bicycle  2 Ryan Vanguards, a Longbikes Slipstream, a Bike Friday Sat-R Day and a BikeE Fx and expect to keep some but not all of them. So Recumbent cycling still has a special place in my heart.
