I’m looking to get a recumbent bike for travelling long weekends around Europe. I don’t know much about bikes and I’m looking at recumbent mainly for comfort reasons; I tried biking long trips on a normal bike and by butt was hurting quite a lot.
I have a view quite specific questions:
- Which model should I look into buying as a total newbie? Considering my budget is around ~2000 euros
- Should I consider the electric assisted paddling ones? I’m super interested in these. Would buying a normal recumbent and then adding an electric motor later make sense?
- Can a regular recumbent fit another seat in the back? Curious since sometimes I may want to travel with a friend.
Any help would be great!
