    Hey there. I have CBM0008 in the least likely place you would expect – Darwin! ( although due to the recall it is now CBM290). All fixed now. Great site. Cheers!

      Sorry missed your post. Glad you got it sorted okay. Many recumbents in Darwin?

        Not many at all really…I’ve only seen one trike and a guy on a homebuilt long wheelbase bike. Doesn’t bother me too much though as I get heaps of waves and smiles, especially from the kids. One guy even ran his car into a gutter last weekend as he was more interested in looking at me on my bike than the road!
