The ‘bent

With little time to make the transition from DF (diamond frame) to recumbent I had to find a bike that was fit for purpose, but also available in a reasonable (less than 6 weeks) amount of time.

After ordering the Streetmachine I spent the weekend doing more research and found out about AZUB, a recumbent and trike manufacturer in the Czech Republic.  Monday was a UK bank holiday, and I was on a ride from Essex to London, so I called them from a Costa in Chemsford.

I had also emailed, explaining why I was looking for a bike I could get quickly. On the phone I was told 8 weeks, and I figured that was that. But then I received an email from them that they had a demo bike from a recent bicycle show, and they could get it to me in a week as is, or how I wanted it configured in two!

So I worked with them on the specifications, and, just as promised, the bicycle arrived at Bikefix, their London dealer, in two weeks.

So this is what I’m riding the length of the UK on.
