I really would like to ride a recumbent bicycle. I've only seen one,
ever, in my life. It was red, and went by so fast I didn't really get
a good look at it until I found one like it on the www. I priced a
few, and can't figure out why they're soo expensive, even used ones
with dry noisey crank bearings or worn out sprockets are expensive to
purchase. Is it because they're all hand made? I don't know. But I'll
keep looking.

Suggest that YOU take a trip to Stevens Point, WI which is near
Canada and visit the store:

PS They sell used recumbents.

Thanks for the thought. But I'm looking for stuff in Canada. We still
have bicycle manufacturers here in Canada. What I should do is put a
"bug" in the ear of their sales/marketing department and see if they
can't start offering more than bmx and mountain bicycles.

There are some Recumbent manufactures that have sales at Canadian dealers. Not a lot but some. You really have to do your research on recumbents before you make your choice. There's some many different styles and types of them. Riding one is a learning curve. Once you have all that there's nothing like it!
