We don't do any group riding anymore as JoLynn, can ride all day BUT she's really SLOW and groups/clubs just can't handle it IF you can't keep up with them!!!! :( So we will just ride by ourselves and have FUN! The BAD thing about Recumbent Trikes is that they are almost "double" the price of a comparable bicycle.
My Sunseeker Eco-Tad SX, 7 speed is $1000, my Del Sol Comfort bike with a 21 speed set up is $425.00 so it's quite a "step up" price wise for actually "LESS" but the comfort/balance factor is worth the extra money to us. Even with 21 speeds we've found that we mainly use the "32 tooth Middle Chainwheel" and the 7 speed cassette rear gears 90% of the time so it shouldn't be a bike problem going to a 7 speed set up! I can always "upgrade" the trike later! :)
