I am an avid, but casual bicyclist. Just doing the regular paved bike trails in the city, 22 mile dedicated section.
My wife suprised me yesterday with a new Sun EZ3 USX recumbent. I have only expressed passing interest in one in the past. I was using normal hybrid bicycle previously.
The question i have, to pick your brains, is that I am a large framed person, 6'2, 280lbs, with lots of bicycling under my belt.
Is the Sun EZ3 USX a good bike to switch to? I test drove it yesterday, and everything about is comfortable, but havent tested it yet for the long haul runs. Or is there a different recumbent bike out there that i should look into instead? I used to be very agressive and power ride on the normal bicycle. Can i power ride, hard core on the Sun EZ3 USX? I dont have a speedometer installed yet, what can i expect top speed wise?
I dont want to hurt my wifes feelings, she splurged alot for this for me.
Any thoughts or ideas on the Sun EZ3 USX performance would be great.
