On 1/4/07 Bill Haluzak told me he is calling it quits from
recumbent bicycle manufacturing. Since then the Haluzak Horizon,
Hybrid Race and leprechaun Recumbent bikes and Haluzak Triumf
recumbent trikes have been unavailable. We keep Haluzak
Recumbent parts and accessories in stock so these fine bikes can
ride for years to come.

If you are looking for a new, quality, lightweight SWB USS recumbent you
should consider the Linear Recumbents Roadster which won the
bentrideronline Bike of the Rear in 2012. Read the article here:
Roadster named Recumbent Bike of the Year by 'bentrideronline.

For years, Bill Haluzak built some of the finest USS recumbent bikes
available. All of his bikes are similarly designed and change little over
the years. In fact, it is difficult to tell them apart in pictures. Some
99% of Haluzak's bikes are USS SWB with bar-ends and bar-con shifters.
Their rider position, handling and comfort are similar. You can get a
Haluzak with OSS handlebars, which comprises the missing 1% of their
sales. The frame detail, rider position and handling are very good.
Quality components and Bar-Con shifters made the Haluzak among the best
shifting 'bents on the market. Their chain idler is nearly silent and
pretty trouble free. USS handlebars with bar-end are an excellent
combination. It gives one of the most comfortable hand-arm positions of
any USS 'bent. Haluzak, Longbikes and Linear recumbents all use this
handlebar style. Haluzak low speed maneuverability is good, they climb
pretty well too.
Some recumbent beginners find it easiest to learn to ride USS bikes like
the Haluzak. As with all USS bikes accessories mounted on the handlebars
are sometimes harder to see. This is particularly important with
speedometers and mirrors. For adding lights, Speedo's and mirrors to any
USS bike requires the purchase of an optional mount (or some ingenuity.)
All Haluzak models share the same seat. It is light and breathes very
well. The seat cover is extremely durable. The seat frame is somewhat less
durable, we have seen a few riders over 220 lb break them. I have not been
able to get really comfortable on it but Haluzak owners rarely complain.
Haluzak says it breaks in to fit you in a few hundred miles. Haluzak
owners are sometimes quite loyal to their bike.
Options available on the Haluzak include an accessory mount (for lights &
speedometers), front shocks on the Horizon or Hybrid race, and Over Seat
Steering (but OSS is only 1% of their sales.)
The seats on Haluzak (like Lightning and Vision) bikes don't adjust to fit
your leg length, the pedals do. This makes adjustment to different riders
more difficult as you may need to change the chain length also. For owners
who want to share their bikes with riders of different height this is
inconvenient. The fixed seat position helps keep your weight optimally
centered between the wheels whether you are tall or short. Their optimal
weight distribution and medium wheelbase combine to deliver their
