Lightning riders

Roland Stück

While I’m awaiting the arrival of my new R-84/F-40, I’m riding my Phantom (pictured here) with a large Zzipper, your panniers, and a really cool thing — the AWS [Allwetterschutz für das Liegerad]: Alfred’s All Weather Solutions (rain protection).

I am a great fan of your Lightning design!

For family things requiring more logistical support, here is my second Porsche: A Phantom with a Burley cub trailer, bought brand new in 2009. It was my introduction to the recumbent world. A lot of holidays and family trips later I can say this thing is the ultimate work horse and practically cool. Without the trailer it is still very fast, especially with the original Lightning Zero-Drag Panniers. This machine it is inexpensive and highly reliable.

In my experience, I can say Tim Brummer builds the best bikes around. The Lightning helped us to abandon our second car. For a guy like me who cares about the environment and enjoys cycling the same time there is no better combination! One thing is for sure: bicycles and especially faired recumbents are the solution for most traffic problems in urban areas.

Cheers to all Lightning riders and a fabulous year 2018! And for you folks who still don’t know these machines: Test-ride them before we all get stuck in traffic jams and polluted air.

Thanx Tim for such great bikes! I will be always a huge fan of your Lightning design!
