ill choose my ball tearer over your lawn chair anyday!
Oh my mistake, I guess you prefer pain, I prefer an off-road recumbent!
I must say you are the first I have met to prefer a ball breaker over a bike that won't keep you from riding due to pain.

I'm talking Montana off road too! Some of the steepest mountain terrain you can find around in the Rockies.
I'll be be in perfect comfort going down hill over trees (logs) and 2 - 3ft drops on a Lightfoot Cycles Big Foot.
HA that thing is brilliant, imagine that with a 5404 in the rear wheel! its like the monster truck of the bike world.
I wouldnt have thought a offroad recumbent would be as capable/agile as a regular bike though...
Yeah, they are pretty impressive, but if you're riding at speed doing a race or highly technical off-road, you really can't beat an up-right for body english to make things work or tricks, but it's amazing what some recumbent riders can do!
There is a great video of one rider going up-hill too, but I couldn't find it.
