Sport Recumbent Bicycle
The EZ-Sport is a
Chromoly steel LWB designed by Gardner Martin with 20" front and 26"
rear wheels. It may sound like an economical, imported Tour Easy. It is
not. Gardner told me he deigned it to be "the easiest bike for a novice
to get used to" many of our customers think he has succeeded. He gave it
a higher seat for better visibility. The higher seat is fine for taller
folks but riders under ~5’6” may have trouble reaching the ground when
they start and stop. Its weight is higher too, at 40 lb it is about 10
lb heavier than the Tour Easy. For larger riders the40 lb weight may not
be a huge issue, and the 300 LB warranty weight is reassuring. It has
similar comfort and stability and at less than half the $2450 price of
the legendary Tour Easy. If you want to spend ~$400 more, than the
EZ-Sport, get high quality components and save some weight take a ride
on the 36.5 LB Easy Sport AX. Because it has the same geometry, seat and
handlebars it feels and handles very much the same, just lighter and
Shorter riders on a budget might want to try one of the Sun EZ-1s, their
seats are lower so it is easier for them to start and stop. Shorter
riders also might consider the Bacchetta Bellandaire and the RANS
Stratus LE. These bikes have lower seats, are still under $1500 and are
considerably quicker and more stable than the EZ-1s.
The EZ-Sport’s larger wheels make it a bit quicker and allow it to it
roll over bumps more smoothly than the EZ-1 SX and EZ-1 AX with their
16" and 20" wheels. The Sport is also more bulky to store and transport
than the smaller EZ-1’s.
