The good folks at Cruzbike have put together a great advertisement, not just for their own bikes, but for recumbents in general. Hits one of the "why do you ride that thing?" questions squarely on the head - comfort of the 'taint and not to mention - protection for your erection! (ha ha)
Having recently started riding the Downtube 9FS, for short distances, I can say that yes - the upright bike position is just simply NOT comfortable over the long haul. If it were, huge diaper-shorts would not be needed to go long miles.
Get a recumbent and protect your WHAT WHAT!
