Strengths:    The comfort was impressive. Its seating and was great and the steering position was just right. Good looking bike, got lots of admiring looks (I'm referring to the bike!). The fit was just right for a short person (I'm 5'4").

Weaknesses:    The components are less than I would have spec'd out, but worked well. Probably what you should expect for an $800 bike. It wasn't as fast up hills as I am used to.

Bottom Line:   
A friend had a new Thunderbolt on loan from Lightning and offered to let me take it on a 25 mile ride. Some street riding, but mostly on Santa Clarita bike paths. This was my first ride on a recumbent. It was easy to ride once I figured out how to ride in a straight line. I was surprised how pain-free I was--only muscles I hadn't used before were tired.

Anyone rushing out to get the Thunderbolt today?

Kinda pricey at $250 with 2 yr contract. Is it really all that? Sounds like 3g will still be used for calls--4G is data only. And not liking that VZ is hinting they will soon be doing capped data plans. Kinda sounds like a HTC version of the Droid X that can be used on the LTE network. [URL="http:/ ... Read More »

Looking for an Airborne Thunderbolt frame....

58cm. The one I have has developed some rather disturbing cracks where the seat stays are welded to the seat tube. The frame is stiff and somewhat harsh, but I love the ride. If anyone knows of anything I'd be grateful!Read More »

My practically new 2005 Airborne Thunderbolt

So Iast fall, I was in the market for a new bike, something slightly off the beaten Trek/Giant/Specialized/etc. path (NTTAWWT) and found this, a specimen with 3 miles on it that had been traded in at a not-so-LBS about a year prior. Not magnesium but aluminum frame, full 10-speed Ultegra, Ouzo Pro f ... Read More »
