"Greetings Playdough. I can appreciate the LWB, but in my correspondence with Wayne, he is steering me towards a SWB, and having had both, I'm inclined to agree. If I was buying a new bike, I wouldn't have OSS like my Giro, but USS like my…"
"G'day Doc, Funny you should say that, because at the time I was following one of our elderly penny riders, with large mustache groomed for the event, and we passed a group of recumbent riders. He called out "Look at all the funny looking…"
"Hello again David. The picture is of a similar bike, but not mine. Mine has the same colours, but has a 2 piece seat with a black mesh seat back with padded black padded seat. Most other details look similar, although mine is a Giro, not a Strada."
As David and James have said, I currently own a Kotzur LWB recumbent and a Bachetta Giro (both formerly owned by David I may add). My dear wife agreed to my buying the Giro on condition that I sell the Kotzur, which I have yet to do.
Yep, Kotzur are quality bikes. Hopefully Playdough on this site will comment as he owns one.
Interesting that your Giro 26 was stolen. I expect it will turn up for sale somewhere at some point. Not many bikes go un-noticed by this…"
"Thanks for your reply and comments James.

"Hello Neil, welcome to the group.
As far as I know the Kotzur bikes are well regarded, there is at least one long wheelbase Kotzur bike in Brisbane that I know of. I believe it may even be for sale at the moment.
There's a couple of…"
Hello to all the 'bent riders out there. I have recently joined the group to find out if there was a dedicated group for recumbents after passing a group of riders last July at Clontarf while I was riding along with the penny farthing club. No, in case you're wondering, I don't have a penny; just a rod braked safety bike from the 1940's approx (I like old bikes too, but not for long distances).Anyway, a little about myself. I live on the Darling Downs, and had enough of the pins and needles…See More
Home built LWB based on Atomic Zombie Tourmaster.
Had a Bachetta Giro, but was stolen.
Want to get a HP Velotichnik, Azub, or Linear Limo when I can get funds together.
I also like pre-1970 regular bikes, but love pre-war bikes.
