    The EZ 1 is like a mule: you can gussy it up and futz
    with the components, but it is still a mule. It is a
    highly functional bike as is but adjustments to the
    rider will be much more effective than fiddling with
    the bike as far as speed goes assuming you have done
    the basic things to get it to fit you. Seat angle and
    position can be optimized. A few people were getting
    excited on the recumbent boards elsewhere about
    mounting shorter cranks (150-160mm) so they could
    spin better. Lighter wheels would be a complete waste
    of money. Knocking a few # off a 35# bike is not going
    to do much. Steve
