What's new on this website?

  • 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?
