Enjoyable Journey on a Gravel ‘Bent – BionicOldGuy

My recumbent has fairly fats tires (45 mm/1.75″ within the rear, 38 mm/1.5″ within the entrance) and does surprisingly nicely on poor pavement or off-road. I definitely wouldn’t use it for a mountain bike, however it’s equal to an upright “gravel bike”. I attempted it out on some gravel and flat off-road in addition to poor pavement at present and it did positive.

Immediately’s schedule referred to as for simple day for the legs, onerous day for the higher physique, so I first did a warmup, then weights and resistance bands for the higher physique, then went for my journey.

Earlier than this journey, I improved my electrical help a bit by mounting it decrease, which lowers the middle of gravity of the bike for higher dealing with. The one place to place it apart from a rear rack is beneath the primary body tube, however the seat clamp will get in the way in which. So I made a bit bridge to clear the clamp, and the battery attaches to that. Some velcro straps function a backup in case the battery labored its approach free.
Right here is the completed product. I not want the rear rack as a result of I now have room for my seat bag once more, so I’ll put the rack on one other bike.
I additionally added a digicam mount on the bars so I can take photos whereas using with out my knees in the way in which
