Details

Sun's EZ-Sport CX combines cool styling with a smooth-riding, long-wheelbase design. The responsive chromoly frame is strong and resilient, while the aluminum wheels roll effortlessly wherever you go. You'll also love the fully supportive seat, ergonomic handlebars and the stable, low crank position. Plus, the 24-speed SRAM/Shimano drivetrain shifts with precision and the Promax linear-pull brakes offer top-notch stopping power.

To measure your X-Seam, sit flat on the floor with your back reclined against a 30- to 48-inch board angled 14- to 15-inches from the wall and measure along the floor from the board to your heel. Be sure your buttocks are pressed against the board and your legs are flat on the floor. If you're close to either end of the X-Seam range, just ask us and we'll help you choose the proper size.

Comments:

I really like riding the Sport. It is very much like riding the Tour Easy I rode years ago (long story). The price difference in the two bents is surely not worth the extra expense IMO. The components are low end but work very well. I bought mine used and put new seat cover and back on it along with new shifters.

    I bought this bike used and wish I would have bought one years ago. I can ride this as long and far as I want to now with no pain afterwards. I have no problem keeping up with friends who like to ride for distance and speed. They are ussually sore afterwards. But I could go further. It is fun to ride.

    I ride cinder/gravel rail-trails almost exclusively, and traded those rock-hard tires for some good mountain-bike tires. The extra grip and cushion made a WORLD of difference in the ride and handling. Another hint - the bike rides best in bike racks when placed upside-down. Yes, recumbents are different!

    Comments:

    I had to move to recumbent because of a couple of bad disk in my neck and I never looked back. The EZ Sport CX is a great bike. Fun and comfortable to ride. Yes, it's heavy and it comes nowhere near the agility of my old Cannondale road bike. But by the same token, the Cannondale can't compare when it come to the pleasure of riding the EZ Sport. Now, I did upgrade quite a bit if not all the components, but that's just the type of nut job I am. Safe and happy riding. Angelo

    Comments:

    If you have a back problem or cannot tolerate leaning over on a typical bike...this is the answer. Don't like those skinny slice in the butt seats...this bike is like riding in a lawn/camping chair. You will love it. Only con...somewhat difficult to haul but worth the time and effort. For the money the Sun recumbent is GREAT. GM-Omaha

    Comments:

    Although it is a heavy bike, even by recumbent standards, it is well made and you can get warranty work done on it at any bike shop which sells Sun bicycles. Those factors, and the additional advantages of toughness, stability and ease of riding make it a great bike for commuting or touring long distances with fully loaded panniers.

      Comments:

      Since getting the EZ-Sport three weeks ago I have been commuting 12 miles round trip daily to a desk job, and out for pleasure cruising / exploring on the weekends. Even 20 years ago in college I had numb hands, a sore upper back and neck after riding only 3 miles on a traditional bike. With a recumbent I have ridden over 10 miles non-stop and it seems effortless, no pain. This recumbent is a sensible solution. I tried five different models and the Sun EZ-Sport is the most comfortable. It took a little adjustment in driving to avoid curbs since bunny-hops are practically impossible. Have to slow down in wash-board like bumpy conditions too. Have needed only one adjustment, it was to the front gear shifter. Happy with the shifters, I can see how more expensive models are easier to adjust. This bike brought back the pleasure in cycling experienced as a young child.
