I am 65 and gave up on my upright bike a couple of years ago because of wrist pain. I test-rode 3 models of recumbent bikes and 1 recumbent trike. I was very comfortable with the trike. I began checking Kijiji (like Craigslist) and bought a used, discontinued Greenspeed GTO last August.

I now ride slower, especially uphill, but feel very good when I am doing it.

Planning to ride my first RAGBRAI this year. I have ridden over 500 miles this year (nearly 900 miles since I bought it in August).

Good luck.
