Strength:

The Linear's chief strength is THE SEAT!! They are just so comfortable.

Weakness:

Not an off road, gravel or trail bike. Stay on pavement.

Bought my Linear recumbent in 1992 and am still riding it. I absolutely love that bike. I rode it once around the dealers lot 11 years ago and was hooked. I bought it a month later. With a Linear recumbent, you can just ride and ride.

I've owned a number of bikes, including a tandem, but none can hold a candle to the Linear.

Strength:

super comfy and fun fun fun. Very dependable with proper parts replacement. It folds to save space and has 21 gears, which I found to be plenty.

Weakness:

If you weight over 200 lbs I recommend replacing the 36 spoke, 27 inch rear wheel with a 48 spoke, 26 inch tanden wheel. Inspect chain stay (holds the rear wheel) for possible small cracks, drill a small hole at the top of said fissure should it appear and weld when you get the chance.

Best touring bicycle possible. You sit up, you can see everything as you go along, wonderful. The long wheelbase on my linear means that I am not quickly correcting my steering every few milli-seconds. The underseat steering means that gravity pulls my arms down along my side anyway, and so there is my handlebars are waiting.

Nothing like it anywhere.
