specific info about the Cambie Recumboni

Does anyone have any experience with a Cambie Recumboni? If so, would you please offer opinions and thoughts about what you believe to be its assets and deficiencies as a LWB recumbent?

How comfortable is the factory seat?
What of the disk brake setup?
Will the rear rack be good for touring or should I upgrade immediately (like, at the time of purchase)?
For recumbent touring, how low should low gear be (should it mimic gears on a diamond frame)? This will let me know whether I need to opt for different gearing at time of purchase as well.


Thanks, in advance, for the input.

Well, I guess you all need not reply. The urge to spend got the better of me and the deal was too good to pass up so I dropped the dough on a Sun EZ Speedster.
