|08:04 pm - NSV or some such abrieviation.|
So I bought some clothes today cause i'm going to new york for Passover this weekend with the family.
My old pants from before the operation and what i've been wearing has a waist of 60.
New pants has a waste of 50.
Dress shirt has gone from 4x to the 2x/3x border.
I'm just as shocked as you are.
Current Mood: shocked
Tried to find an appropriate post to ask, how do you like your recumbent bike? Do you mind my asking if it was $$? I'm fixing the brakes on my bike and man it hurts my back and ass.

I paid about $1000 for it. (and about 100 extra for gear).
I've enjoyed it but I've only gotten out about twice since all my weekends have been crappy weather or me out traveling since I got it.
It is definitely not a bike for if you want to go fast. Its fairly comfortable but since its like 70 pounds it is a turtle. but that's cause mine is a trike.
my worry was all the hills (aside from potential cost) around my house and that my cardio requires intensity intervals, I wondered if it was even a decent option. I hate the ass numbing seat configurations on standard bikes. Guess I'll just get a 'wide load' spongy seat and figure the back pain will ease up as progress with upper body workouts. Now that I've seen some google pix, I think I'd get killed on my part of 303 whereas if a semi barreled down on me on a regular bike, I might have a chance to dive and roll :)

you might want to check out a normal recumbent. they go the same speed as normal and if yo do crash you don't have as far to fall.
