Dis. A naked rider on a standard bike would still look less ridiculous than a fully clothed recumbent rider.
Scene: I'm driving my married friends around town a year ago, waiting at a light. A recumbent rider, resplendent in his spandex, crosses the road in front of us.
Her: "What kind of bike is that?"
Me: "A recumbent. You've got to be a total asshole to own one."
Him: "Oh yeah, you're guaranteed to be a raging douche. I mean, look at this fucker."
Me: "You know, I'm thinking about getting one..."
Him: "Yeah, me too. It looks like a good time."
