Late last summer I had asked some questions on the forum to get a comparison of the Silvio vs the QX100. Having never ridden a recumbent of any kind (other than 5 minutes on one of my parent's trikes) I was trying find out what I could. Ratz in particular was very helpful in the information he provided. I continued to monitor the forum, and really appreciated the general tone and content of those who post. If the QX works out, I may get hooked and want to try out something a little faster. Anyway, just wanted to thank everyone for the forum posts, and say I am excited to try out a new style of bike, since I have not had an interest in sitting on uncomfortable bike seats for the last couple decades.
