I bought my Quest Cruzbike after visiting Robert in Brooklyn. The money spent for training with Robert (rebated if you buy a bike) was money well spent. I have extensive experience bike riding and recumbent riding, but the CruzBike was something new to learn.
Cruzbike takes time to get real comfortable with and get the bike totally dialed in. Plan on 90 days and then try your old bike-I will not go back. I now ride almost a 100 miles a week commuting to work.
1. Very knowledgeable
2. Good teacher
3. Pleasant to work with
4. Excellent follow up to questions, concerns, etc (even before I bought

Call today for a demo ride or lesson on a recumbent bike or trike: (646) 233-1219.
Demo/lesson location: Eastern Parkway Greenway and Prospect Park, Brooklyn
Demo fee credited in full upon purchase.
We collect $100 per person for demo rides. Your $100 is credited in full when you buy a recumbent bicycle or tricycle from New York Recumbent Supply, whenever that may be.
For both demos and lessons, we require that you sign a waiver and present ID and a major credit card.
For those who have never ridden a recumbent bike, we offer private lessons on a high-quality HP Velotechnik Grasshopper fx, HP Velotechnik Street Machine Gte, Cruzbike Quest, or other short wheelbase recumbent bike. Lessons and demos are given on the car-free Eastern Parkway Greenway and in Prospect Park, so you can safely try the bike on hills and curves and around other bicycles. Demos and lessons usually run 60-90 minutes.
You will be riding a valuable bike. We reserve the right to deny or cancel a demo ride for any reason whatsoever. The most common reasons for cancellation are bad weather and concern, based on observing how you handle the bike, that you might damage the bike, injure yourself, or hurt someone in the park or on the greenway. All demos are by appointment only and subject to bike availability.
