Recumbents are pretty cool, but I've never owned one. They are fast. This guy was cruising the PIR course on his Easy Racer while the regular race was going on. When I lived in Kotzebue, Alaska the mayor of Barrow was a serious recumbent man. I heard he had a real bent scene going on up there on the top of the world. Like me, he's from Oregon. Man, look at that chain!
