Rotator Pursuit-Rans V2 squared-Easy Tour

Hi,
I am about to buy a recumbent, my wedgy is killing me. I have considered the Easy Racers Tour Easy, the Rans V2 Squared, and the Rotator Pursuit. I have rode all three and mixture of SWB s, I always come back to the Rotator Pursuit. The Pursuit is a little shakey at low speed, but wow is it fast. I am in good phyical shape to be an old dude, and can push this bike. The V2 is nice, and that seat is great, with fairing a good bike, I just don't feel as good on this bike as the Pursuit. The Easy Tour is nice, and a very good bike. A solid ride, but....I consider it a cruiser bent. I keep going back to the Pursuit. I know Steve the engineer and builder of Rotator makes frames for Easy Racers and a couple of others out there. Do any of you all have any input on the Rotator, since I am leaning in that direction?

All three bikes are well-known and have their adherents, but you've ridden all three (and more) so for you I think the decision is clear: Go with the one you feel best about in comfort, performance and personal appeal.

Start enjoying the ride!

I Rode the V2 Squared, and almost crashed, wow, not used to the long wheel base. Nice bike, I dont think it is my cup of Tea. I rode the VREX and loved it. the tailwinds is ok...still I keep going back to the Rotator.:confused:

Why spend time asking?

If you keep on going back to the rotator, it is probably the best choice for you.

Buy what feels, rides, (and of lessor importance) looks, nice to your mind.


Have fun!!
