Co-Founder and Design Director John Tolhurst writes:
Before designing the Cruzbike and founding Cruzbike Inc., I spent ten years in the architecture profession and fifteen years consulting before being made a Fellow of the Institute of Management Consultants. I have BA, BSc and MBA degrees from Australian universities. I am motivated by the hope that we all have a future on our fragile spaceship earth - and a vision that there are many more exciting and practical low energy vehicles yet to be built.
For over a decade I've been struck by the possibilities for front wheel drive cycling - a configuration that today has proven its excellence. On all kinds of surfaces - with a load up or without, with my four year old child on the back or not – the Cruzbike is the daily rider, Dad's taxi, the weekend sprinter, and the lazy beach cruiser.
The Cruzbike Front Wheel Drive technology is very recent as far as bicycle design history goes, it is probably the most recent development to the fundamental principles of how a bicycle works. All other bicycle designs go back at least 100 years, while the cruzbike began in 2005 based on a design first prototyped in 1987 by Tom Traylor.
Because it is a new solution to extracting power from the human body, the riding technique is a little different from other recumbents but adapting one's pedaling style is no barrier as the ever growing community of enthusiastic Cruzbike owners will testify.
