Introduction

Postby John Lewis » Tue Oct 02, 2007 7:54 pm

Hello,

I'm new to this forum so a quick introduction.

I'm 66 years old and have been riding about 6 years.
I'm a retired school principal.

My wife and I own Logo trikes that we have used to tour Tasmania on two occasions. Most recently the Great Vic Bike Rides East Coast ride from Launceston to Hobart earlier this year.

I have built a number of two wheel bents. Four Tour Easy look alikes, A Bentech for myself and the frame for the Bentech that David "RDP" built up into his bike.

Glad to be able to greet you once again, only this time, it's to an aussie nuthouse, not a yank asylumn :D

PM me some links to photos of your bikes mate and I'll post them for you, they are a lovely collection of bikes.

G'day John,

I'm another 'bent bloke, though not where you might think. That's right - I'm in Western Australia! :D

Welcome aboard. I hope you enjoy it here. Generally, they're a friendly bunch, as far as wedgie riders go .... ;)

Cheers,
Graeme

Hi Graeme,

I'm in W.A. too. In Albany.

Do you know Martin ? He lives in the Spearwood Area.

G'day John,

I met Martin when I was researching 'bents. I went around to his house and checked out his design philosophies. We had a good natter on all sorts of things from trikes to MTBs and pedals. I found him very friendly and his trikes are beautiful devices. Unfortunately for him, I was always going to get a bike, and he knew that from our first email conversation. Just goes to show how enthusiastic he is about recumbents in general!

Cheers,
Graeme
