I manufacture performance parts for high end Japanese and German cars. I built, own and drive the World's Fastest Hearse.
At first it was the price point of the Sofrider. It was my first recumbent purchase and it looked like a good bike especially for the money. After riding it and many other recumbents over the past 7 years I've found that Cruzbikes climb the best and offer almost a full body workout by utilizing the upper body strength as part of pedaling. In fact I've gotten rid of many other recumbent bikes in favor of just a couple Cruzbikes.
I love to go fast and far. I do 100+ mile rides regularly and Cruzbikes are comfortable, fast and can climb well. I’ve tried almost all makes and models of recumbent bikes and no other comes close to doing everything as well as a Cruzbike.
I really enjoy passing road bike riders on what I call my flying Lazy Boy with pedals. Those poor guys sacrifice so much comfort to go fast. On my Cruzbike I can be comfortable for a whole day of riding and faster than these guys in almost every case even after putting in 100+ miles.
