    I’m getting an HP Velotechnik Scorpion FS 26 next month. What 2 or 3 cycling computer models would you recommend, and where would you mount them? Would you go with wireless? What do you think of Garmin, Strada, etc.?

    Thanks for your help. I enjoy reading your posts.

    Hi Calvin,

    Personally, I do not use electronic gadgets at all when I travel, but many of my trike and recumbent friends do, so I hope they will reply to your query with the best options. I am not qualified to speak to this question.

    Okay TA readers: Please answer Calvin’s question the best you can! I’m counting on you to help him out!

    Hi guys,
    Sorry for posting here, but I could not find out how and where I could send a message to Steve…
    So I post it here, hoping Steve can see it or someone could forward him.
    Here’s the message:
    Hi Steve,

    I’m Jean from Vida Bike (Barcelona, Spain) a recumbent bike tours company.
    We have been in touch last year, regarding my press release about the
    “Recumbent Tour de France”, that you kindly published in your website.
    Last week I sent a mailing to all my contacts, but I’ve noticed you are not
    in my list, so I resend you this mailing about our 2015 Recumbent bike and
    trike tours, I hope it may be of interest for you and your readers.
    Here is the link in my website for these 2015 recumbent tours:

    Would it be possible to publish it in your blog? It would be great help!

    Kind regards
