What's new on this website?

27 Apr 2016

  • Site navigation changes.

28 Feb 2016

  • All news from our front page or at www.alphabent.com/news.
  • Responsive theme with multi-level menus. We're using a new theme that gives pretty good results on lots of different devices. Still a bit of tweaking to do, but, largely, its working pretty well.
  • Find out about recumbent rides in northern California and the Bay Area. We show a calendar of rides now on our front page and at www.alphabent.com/calendar
  • Secure website. We have moved to a strictly SSL HTTP protocol. What this means for you is that when you register, log-in, or do anything on our website, no mal-adjusted people in the world will be able to sniff out your password or spy on you from midstream.
  • Accordion views. Many of the lists of information have now been moved into something called an "accordion" view. This means that you will generally see a headline and then you can click on it to see more, rather than get overwhelmed by all of the information at once.
  • Hashtags. Now, a lot of the content is indexed with user-definable hashtags. Someday, this might be useful, and that day might already be here. It should help to group different content together. When you see a tag, you should be able to click on it and see anything tagged with that.
  • Better Classified Ads. We have made it easier to list and find used stuff that gets put on our classified ads. Classifieds can be found at www.alphabent.com/classifieds and are organized by product type and brand.

Can you tell we enjoy this stuff as much as recumbents?

This just in

Rim tape is an invisible partner to all recumbent trike and bike riders. Rim tape protects the inner tube from sharp hole edges on double-wall rims and spoke-ends on singlewall rims.

Terratrike owners sometimes find that the front corners of the seats are hotspots that chafe their legs as they ride. Additionally, the relatively dense weave of the seat covers on Terratrike Rambler and Rover models keep rider sweat from evaporating readily.
