700C Stratus LE

Gold Country Cyclery just took delivery of the new Stratus LE XL with 700C rear wheel. From the Gold Country Blog:

The first of the newly designed Stratus LE XL’s has arrived at our shop. This new model sports the same silver/blue paint scheme as the standard size models, but has a redesigned rear triangle to accommodate it’s 700c rear wheel. With that design includes IS disc brake mount for future upgrades. Wheelset has proven Sun CR18 406/700c rims and Shimano Deore hubs. New Continental SportContact slicks (406-28 /700-28) are quite a departure from the Primo Comets.

Brief test riding reveals the new Stratus to be stable and fast! For the moment our retail price is $1490

In my opinion, the Stratus LE is one of the best all-around recumbents on the market and a super value. The 700C rear wheel puts it head-to-head with the Tour Easy.

    It’s the amazing levitating recumbent.

    Wow! This is going to give the Tour EZ a run for it’s money. This was the deciding factor when I chose the Tour EZ over the Stratus.

    Alan you take great photographs you should leave photoshopping to the professionals. :)

    Sorry, but I can’t take credit – that was Rick’s handiwork. :-)
