    Tumatan, there's no way of knowing until she rides a few. Personally, I've had great luck riding my LWB EZ Sport. I've had lower back and neck problems for years. I finally had to give up riding my...

    This is how I change the wheels on my DF's. Hadn't really thought about doing it the same way with the EZ Sport since it is so much longer and heavier. Probably how I will remove the wheel if there...

    Ric, The only way I would change the rear wheel/tire while the bike is laying on the ground is if there are no trees around. What a pain in the ***. It's do-able but it's tough. I...

    We are the minority here and on the road. One of the reason I enjoy my bent so much is all the weird looks and comments I get from the uninformed masses. I like being different. I was riding to work...

    OSS to USS conversion

    If I had one wish for my bike it would be under seat steering. I feel this would make it the perfect bike for me. I've owned my EZ Sport for a couple months now and am very happy with it, so this...

    Ric, Here's the pic you wanted. I don't think the fenders look to bad. Since they're black, they don't stand out too much.

    Thanks for the advise Recumbomatic. If I'm able to get the longer handlebars, I hope to recline the back a bit more and the seat pan might become a problem. I've been running this through my head for...

    bkaapcke, I've been thinking of longer bars. I really like the stock bars and they would work fine if they were only 4 inches longer. The angles work fine for me and overall they are comportable....
