Greetings! I just signed up a couple of weeks ago. I am simply amazed at the amount of info that is listed in this sight!! I have been riding off and on for the past 15 to 17 years. I am not what you would call a serious hard core rider but someone who rides for the relaxation and the tension release that riding allows. I have owned a number of bikes. My favorite was a Miyata road frame with a bunch of other parts. Rode that one for a long time. The latest purchase is an EZ-1 Super Cruzer recumbent. What a bike. I know there is some negative aspects of the bike, but this being the first recumbent, the more I ride it the more I like it. Finding that I can ride farther and faster as time goes on. As I always say "Just ride the bike!!"
