I now have 8000 miles on my Rans Stratus LE in just 3 years. It has been flawless. All it has needed is regular maintence. The handling is excellent. I can ride it as slow as 3mph waiting for a lite, and have had it up in the mid 40s on the down hills. It is just plain easy to ride, and would be a great first bent for anyone. It is capable of almost any type of cycling that you would want it for. It is great for riding around town on bike paths, and people have ridden it on cross country trips. I continue to feel it is the greatest bang for the buck bent on the market.

You know I had one of those and there are times that I'm sad I sold it. If it just wasn't such a PITA to transport!

It's equally a PITA to transport the Rans Formula, that's why I don't ride it only once in a while.

Have the same transportation issue with my EZ Sport. I'm trying to figure out some way of working that into an excuse to add a Lightning P-38 to my stable! Wink

IMHO the long wheel base recumbent is the ultimate bent. They are the easiest bents to ride. The big thing is they can be adapted to most any type of riding you want to do. Shift the seat more upright, and they are a great bike for around town riding. Load them up and they are probably the best pack horse to ride cross county with.

My Rans Stratus LE is in my opinion the LWB bent with the best bang for the buck. Its handling is great both fast and slow. The seat and handle bars are infinately adjustabe so anyone can achieve a position that suits them. All fun no pain!!!!

Too take my opinion about the Stratus further, the seat and handle bars are the biggest plus. The seat moves back and forth, and has many levels of recline. The handle bars have almost an infinate amount of adjustment. With the seat and handle bars being so adjustable there is no compromise as to what makes the position in the "cockpit" just right for you.

rydabent - That's really one of the major advantages of MOST 'bents: you can adjust the bike to fit YOU, you don't have to search high and low for a bike whose static geometry must fit you.
