My current ride is the PII - second prototype - Vendetta. I rode the Sebring 12 hour and loved every moment, I really bonded with this bike and don't think I ever want to get off it. Getting to ride the latest stuff is a co-founders perk!

As a radiologist, I know human anatomy from head-to-toe. A standard bike places too much pressure on several sensitive areas of the body. This becomes more of a problem as we age. I did an exhaustive search of alternate bicycle designs before concluding that the Cruzbike is the best combination of comfort, performance, safety, and ergonomic design.

It also looks cool, goes very fast, and is simply fun to ride. In the photos, note that the hands and wrists are not bearing weight, the back is supported, the head is in a comfortably high and upright position for viewing traffic (without craning the neck), the rider's weight is not centered over the genitals (which can cause pain, numbness, and loss of function), and the laid-back posture creates nearly the same aerodynamic profile as a racer on a standard bicycle in a tuck position.
