The T50 is a gorgeous, simple recumbent road bike that is delightfully affordable, comfortable and versatile. It is the hop-on-and-go Cruzbike. It is equipped with bosses so you can add racks and panniers for carrying beach towels, groceries or a picnic. Plus, the seat back angle is our most upright so you can ride comfortably with a great view.
This is our simplest, most elegant frame design. But don't let its simplicity fool you - it leverages more than a decade of experience making our fast, comfortable, fun-to-ride recumbent road bikes.
This limited inventory of used/returned stock is your opportunity to get rolling on a T50 for an incredible price.

The T50 frame is made of 7005 T6 aluminum alloy and for the new 2022 T50 it is improved for an even better ride. The main frame is now a 60mm tube (instead of 2 inch) with improved gusseting for strength. The result is an even better more positive feel on the road. We also made the rear end on the main frame e-hub capable for aftermarket electrification.
Custom designed power triangle with telescoping inner tube plus oversized 34.9 mm outer tube for additional stiffness, constructed from quality 7005 T6 aluminum alloy.
Our new seat attachment uses a proven rail system attached directly to the frame. This allows for infinite adjustment front to back, so you can find the perfect weight balance for your height and leg length.
PLUS the 2022 T50 features the new fiber/resin seat introduced on the latest Cruzbike Q45 adventure touring bike. It delivers a fantastic compliant road feel, is half a pound lighter and one and a half inches taller than its aluminum predecessor. Pair it with Cruzbike's one piece seat cushion that cradles riders from shoulders to derrier and yep, our favorite cruiser just got even more comfortable.
