Sun Bicycles EZ1 SX First Impression

Sun Bicycles EZ 1 SXToday I rode my first 30 miles of the new year. I’ve been itching to try out the Sun Bicycles EZ1 SX Recumbent. I loaded it up on the truck using the Rec Rac Bike system and off I went to the San Gabriel River Trail.

I met 3 of my roadie friends and took off to the Beach on an easy 13 mph pace. So how did the bike perform?

Thumbs Up: Super comfortable, no hand pain or numbness, no shoulder or neck pain. I also got used to the bike really quickly, I would say 10 minutes and I had the hang of it.

Thumbs Down: At 40 lbs plus, this bike is on the heavy side, and I felt it going uphill. Fortunately, the EZ1 comes with excellent gearing and I didn’t struggle as much.

Plans for the future: I would definitely ride this bike to work, I’m also considering doing a 50 mile fun ride on the bike.

Side Note: As I rode along on the trail, I noticed more people riding on recumbents. I have to say that although it seems that I’m a little younger than the typical recumbent rider, I got a lot of thumbs up and a ‘love that bike’ comment from other ‘bent riders.
