Amazing Recumbant!

Postby Dunkgrease » Mon Feb 20, 2012 12:19 pm

I had a chance to try this "pimped" recumbant while in Yangshuo, Guangxi Province, China. The Chinese owner was traveling from Beijing to Vietnam.

Image

It was pretty heavy and lots of additions, inclluding a full "boom box" sound system.

I think I'll stick with my trusty Thorn Raven Nomad.

Used a 48 chainring (Miche Primato Advanced) and a 18T Shimano freewheel. Maybe a bit higher than some people would use but allowed me to make good progress on the flat without spinning out. You planning on a similar trip?

I nearly did not look at the link, but that is a very interesting write-up and photo's . Thanks.

Is there a map of the routes? some of the bike paths look very good and worth publicising.

Why did you write it in english? Naturally I am pleased that you did.

Good to hear I didn't write for nothing. I made the english translation because the builder of the bike asked for it.
I don't have a map of the route yet, but I'm working on it. I will post gmaps-links on my site when ready. I take it you are especially interested in the Norwegian part?

Regards,

Walter

On way to waterfalls in philippines, I got lost a bit and ended up cycling for 13 hours and over 100 miles :D got back to manila in the dark and no lights, what an experience that was but it seems usual for cyclists and motor cyclists to ride with no lights there, strangley seemd more safe than in uk cities lol
When I get time will post video of manila traffic which is unpassable even on a bike

Condor Agio on Ventoux, light credit card touring for 11 days Marseilles(MP2) round the Drome/Provence and back.

touring compact 48/34 on the front 13-29 on the rear, Campag veloce /centaur mix but binned the UT BB and exchanged all that outboard BB cr4p for a cheap stronglight and cartridge BB setup for the chain set. Light set up allowed the use of a Zonda wheelset which speeded things up a tad.

single saddle bag at the rear and rolled up rain gear on handlebars held on with two toe straps

A borrowed Garmin 800 rather than route cards and I must say the Garmin was very good once you had mastered its foibles. Impressed enough to consider buying one

Travelling light from Exeter to St Andeol-en-Quint in the Alps:

Image

The trip was 727 miles in 7 days: two days for Exeter to Portsmouth, then five for St Malo to St Andeol. I cheated by B&Bing it, but it was amusing chatting to the other hardy souls at Portsmouth laden down with their panniers when they saw how little I was taking but how far I was going. Clothes-wise I took just a T-shirt and shorts, simply so I could get out of the cycling gear each evening to wash it. And other than money, passport, phone, Google Nexus, toothpaste & brush, and essential bike stuff, that was it. Weight was about 4 kilos, and as the bike's only about 8 kilos, I reckon the total weight was probably less than most of you guys have in just your back panniers.
