    Burley Koosah or Jett Creek

    I want to add a LWB to complement my Rocket and am wondering if anyone out there can speak of their experience of either of these two bikes. I am intrigued by their handlebar adjustability and their low seating and the bang for the buck.

    I have not actually ridden one yet, but I am planning to do that here in the next few days if it ever stops raining! Any comments appreciated!

    I would recomend a Tour Easy. With the optional fairing it has a perfect cruizer feel. The company- Easy Racers-has it's own message board with super devout fans. I have had a long recumbent since 1982 starting with a infinity and then a Rans and now a Tour Easy. I wish I could have originally afforded the Tour Easy 20 years ago. They are especially attractive if you live where it is mainly flat.

    TE is way out of my budget, though I've heard nothing but good things about them. I went with a Koosah and it is currently on lay-away. I hope I can get it out in the next few months. I was quite impressed with the ride-a fun bike! Looking forward to trying out a LWB over some miles>

    Hi Chilidog,

    I'm not the TE guy(keith-pam), but here's the link to the Easy Racers Board:

    Good luck! Let us know how it goes with your decision!

    Love my CLWB Rans Tailwind. It handles nice and is responsive. I seem to be running speeds on par for what I was doing on my road bike.
