The conversion kit includes everything you need to easily convert an inexpensive but good quality mountain bike to a recumbent cruiser - The Cruzbike Recumbent . The conversion is based on our unique and patented front triangle and is complemented by our contoured Cruzbike Recumbent Seat
Basically, the conversion kit adds a new triangle on the front of the bike to carry the crank set. Adding this conversion kit to a y-frame mountain bike with a low cross bar for mounting the seat gives a comfortable and safe riding position. Other types of bike with a low cross bar can also be converted even if they have no suspension.
The conversion lets you use all the original bike parts, without replacement including the pedals, gears, wheels, handlebars and so on, except for the saddle. A few new pieces of framework are added to the front of the bike and carry the pedals, gears, chain etc so that they drive the front wheel.
The Cruzbike Recumbent Seat fits onto the frame and the back is held rigid by the seat post.
If you have some experience of bicycle mechanics you have all the skills needed to convert a bike to a Cruzbike Recumbent, all you need is to set aside an afternoon for the task. The Cruzbike Recumbent comes with instructions that our customers say "read well and are very comprehensive".
