Update: The Baron was collecting dust since I no longer have any riding buddies who ride recumbent bikes. So, the Baron has been sold.
I bought my Optima Baron from Bentup Cycles. I’ve never owned a low racer so I thought it might be fun to try. I had a high racer (Bacchetta Corsa) for a while but it just didn’t do much for me. I’ve grown to really love the Baron. I’d guess that my average speed is about 2 mph faster over any of my trikes. I still own the Baron and ride it at least once a week and when I need to keep up with my friend Nick on his Corsa.
