In my experience I get way more respect on the road on a trike than a DF or 2 wheeled recumbent. They are large and people see them well and go way around. I think they think you are handicapped and...

Well since the frame was made in 2006, I kind of doubt it! I had a guy that practically thru his Cruzbike and cash at me when I had a Bachetta Strada for sale. I will admit he got right on my Strada...

Ever rode one? I would never recommend a first time recumbent rider to start off with one. Most new recumbent riders have a hard time with a high racer let alone front wheel drive. I kind of agree...

I have silky smooth brakes now. I don't know if I can 100 percent blame the Shimano cables although I think the Jag was a little more flexible. I will say it is wayyyy easier to run new cables in the...

Did you waller out the holes at each end? I will be the first to admit I never knew this until recently, but in my defense, I cut them with a Dremel so never had an issue. Still, it makes it better.

So, I ordered the Jagwire kit today, 30 bucks brakes and shifters. I didn't even think about the pro option. I was glad this kit had the rubber wire grommets, which is why I didn't order the shop kit...

Yeah, I pondered the decision on wheel colors a little bit. They had a freaking blue that matched but I wasn't patient enough to wait for them. I may think about that later but I like it for now.

I think the solution may be to just run the brakes outside of the bars. I did a little tune up on the shifting and and it is shifting well. Also, I guess I could run the Jagwire links but not sure at...

I think this is accurate. I ordered 1 1/8 spacers and they have some play. I should have known since I had a Bacchetta Ti bike with a 1 inch fork and riser set up and had to get spacers for it. So, I...

Rans crank forwards if you want something a little different. The seat goes back more than up on the Cruz models. Not to bad speed wise either. When I did my review of 7 beach cruiser types it was...
