Yup, and I’m no longer among them. Not that you could tell what my bike was anyway…

Found another pair of tires

2x Bontrager Select Invert B tires (700×35)

Pretty much new, maybe 200 miles on them. Free.

More basement clearings-out.

Free to a good home: home-built recumbent frame/fork/front wheel/steering bits/seat frame + fabric for seat cover. Basically, all the non-standard bits to which one adds standard road or MTB parts. The new owner will need to sew the fabric together around the seat frame, and scavenge all the other parts…I highly recommend talking to Gerry Kraynick on the subject.

This was my first ‘bent…the frame’s in dire need of repainting, and the overall quality is about what you’d expect for something welded together out of a couple scrapped old Raleigh bikes. That said, I put a good few thousand miles on it before dropping the coin on a store-bought model.

Images below show what it looked like upon first build.
