    the Freedom Ryder LC-1 is an awesome bike and very fun to ride for leisure, it easily cruises around at 12mph with little effort. i don't think it would be a full out racing bike though. i like sitting up and enjoying the ride while watching to make sure i don't get run over. the recline position would make it hard to see where going all the time, i ride in town, so that wouldn't be good.

      I ride the force and have no problem seeing where I am going...

        Keep in mind too that with the freedom ryder FRH1 you can lean it back with the optional backrest post and have the best of both worlds. Heres a picture of the FRH1 with the optional backrest post installed. http://freedomryder.com/ You don't want to general ride with it setup like this, but for racing it is the ticket, makes the bike feel like a totally different animal. It's listed under options as the "Jointed seat tube" it is an extra $375.00. The Zipp wheels are a good option too, especially for racing. I use my one Zipp on the front and the spinergies on the back for general riding and no problems, I notice I go faster climbing hills with these wheels and at higher speeds because they are more aerodynamic. The only problem with all these things is price, you figure $3695.00 for the handcycle, an extra $2400.00 for the Zipp wheels (I recommend three of these over the Spinergy, much better wheel, wish I had three rather than just one front, but I got the two rear used in spinergies for $300.00) and then the Jointed seat tube your looking at $6470.00 total, just make sure to keep it locked up.
